After two FBI agents were killed during the 1986 FBI Miami shootout – one of whom was a fantastic marksman – the FBI decided they needed more powerful ammunition for their agents. They had specific requirements, though, because they knew they needed one-shot stopping power with less recoil than many large-caliber rounds have. After a few years of testing the .40 S&W was created, and even though it’s very young in the ammunition world having only been created in 1990, it has a vast fan following. The .40 S&W delivers excellent stopping power with less recoil than its parent cartridge, the 10mm, and nearly identical drift and drop to the less powerful 9mm. In many ways it’s the sweet spot of the ammo world, and it’s also a hungry gun.
Feeding your .40 S&W means finding good quality ammunition, because no one wants to feed their gun just anything. This particular ammunition is made by Remington, a legendary company that’s been in business since 1816. That makes it the oldest constantly-operating ammunition company in the United States, and at this point the Remington name speaks for itself. Generations of shooters have relied on Remington for firearms and ammunition; if you want good quality American-made ammunition, this is it.
These are 165 grain rounds, making them moderately heavy for the .40 S&W. They’re heavy enough to hit with significant force yet light enough to move down-range with nice speed, making them a good choice for practice. These are MC – Metal Case – rounds, which is Remington’s version of FMJ. That means they don’t expand on impact and are meant 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. Remington manufactures ammunition at their long-time plant in Lonoke, Arkansas, and these are virgin brass cases with boxer primer, so they can be reloaded. You get 50 target rounds in this box of ammunition. Order today and find out why Remington remains a legend centuries later.
