- Q & A
The .40 S&W may have been born and gained its impressive foothold (cartridge-hold?) here in America, but it’s pretty well-liked around the globe. And up north, in Canada, a retired sheriff offered these interesting numbers about the men in his province who’d once been his professional responsibility: at the time he was in office, there were 4,800 sworn officers on active duty carrying .40 cal Glocks. Every year, the officers had to qualify with those Glocks, firing an average of 100 rounds each in the process. Simple math shows that means 480,000 qualifying rounds were fired every year, and .40 cal Glocks had been standard carry for 10 years, making that number more than 4,800,000 fired during quals. According to the retired sheriff, not a single officer in his province had ever had a single, catastrophic failure. Yes, he – and his men – are big fans of the .40 S&W (and Glocks).
If you’re going to fire 4,800,000 rounds, you might want to buy them from an established and legendary company like Remington. And while we don’t know what company made the rounds fired in Canada, we do know Remington was founded in 1816 and has a long, rich history of providing high-quality ammunition to shooters such as you. They’re also the oldest continuously running company in North America and have developed more cartridges than any other firearms or ammunition manufacturer in the entire world. Yes, they’re impressive, and they made this ammunition, right at their plant in Lonoke, Arkansas.
With Remington’s high standards, you know this is great target ammunition, but here are the details. These are 165 grain, making them medium-weight rounds. They’re FMJ, so they’re great for target practice, tactical training, and plinking, and because they’re new production brass cases with boxer primer they can be reloaded. They have a muzzle velocity of 1,150 feet per second and muzzle energy of 485 foot-pounds. And when you place your order, you get a 50-round box, which is enough to load a few mags and spend some time with your favorite handgun. It doesn’t matter if you’re a high-volume shooter like the aforementioned Canadian police department or only put a 50-round box down-range, these Remington rounds are the way to go.
