After the infamous 1986 FBI Miami Shootout that resulted in the deaths of two agents, one of whom was a talented marksman, the FBI decided they needed better ammunition for their agents. The extensive testing that followed included 10mm rounds, and they came to the conclusion they needed a round with terminal performance similar to that of the 10mm without the enormous recoil. That meant less powder in the casing, which left airspace, so they decided to shorten the case itself, and the .40 S&W was born. The .40 S&W is a rimless, straight-walled pistol cartridge with a maximum pressure of 35,000 psi. It’s capable of fantastic stopping power and has less recoil than its parent cartridge, the 10mm; it’s literally the sweet spot of the handgun ammo world.
If you own a .40 S&W you’re probably a high-volume shooter, in which case you probably want to feed your gun good-quality ammunition to ensure it lasts longer and stays cleaner. This ammunition is made by Remington, a company with 200 years of experience behind it. Remington was founded in 1816 and is now the oldest and largest continuously running ammunition company in the United States. They have six plants throughout the South and east coast, with ammunition production taking place at their plant in Lonoke, Arkansas. When you get your ammunition from Remington you’re getting high-quality American-made ammo from an established, respected company. Generations of shooters have relied on Remington, and so should you.
There are 250 target rounds in this box of ammunition, which is just enough to give you and your favorite gun a good day at the range. At 165 grain these are medium-weight rounds, so they’re light enough to reach good speeds while heavy enough to make a solid impact with your target. These are Metal Case rounds, which are Remington’s version of Full Metal Jacket, so they don’t expand on impact. This ammunition is best for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second and muzzle energy of 485 foot-pounds. Keep your gun well-fed by ordering this box of ammunition from Remington without delay.
