- Q & A
The .40 S&W is sometimes mistakenly referred to as a short 10mm, and although the 10mm is its parent cartridge, that isn’t an accurate description. This tough round was designed in 1990 in response to the 1986 FBI Miami shootout, an intense firefight that resulted in the deaths of more than one agent, one of whom was a skilled marksman. The FBI didn’t want to put its men out there with subpar firepower, but they didn’t want to issue guns with calibers that created such immense recoil it made follow-up shots a problem. A great deal of testing and experimenting went into the creation of the .40 S&W, and to its fans, it really is the perfect middle ground between the 9mm and the 10mm.
These particular .40 S&W rounds are manufactured by Remington at their plant in Lonoke, Arkansas. Remington was founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington, and they’ve been making quality firearms and ammunition ever since. They’re known for a few things in particular, like their part in creating the .223 Remington round, and their creation of the military’s Lake City Arms plant, but they’ve left their mark on every part of the industry. When people think of the most established, quality ammunition company in America, Remington naturally comes to mind.
These are 165 grain rounds, making them just within the middle of the weight spectrum for the cartridge. As Metal Case rounds these don’t expand but simply penetrate your target and keep going, just like a FMJ round, so you need to have a good backstop in place. This ammunition is fantastic for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. Each round moves with exceptional speed with a muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second and makes a serious impact with a muzzle energy of 485 foot-pounds. There are 1000 target rounds in this case of ammo from Remington, so you can keep your .40 S&W well-fed for awhile. Heat up your favorite handgun with these high-quality target rounds.
