- Q & A
The 1986 FBI Miami Shootout impact not only FBI protocols and training but the firearms industry at large. On that day a pair of serial bank robbers led a team of FBI agents on a car chase that ended in the streets of Miami. A firefight ensued and although both robbers were shot early on they continued to fight. When it was over they’d shot all but one agent, killing two. The FBI decided their agents needed better firepower and quickly decided the 10mm produced fantastic power but too much recoil, among other issues. In 1990 the .40 S&W was created, the FBI made it their standard issue, and the gun world was granted a new favorite.
These particular .40 S&W rounds are manufactured by the 200-year-old Remington company. Each round weighs in at a hefty 180 grain making these heavy rounds for this cartridge. Being heavier enables them to strike targets with greater force which is what you want from a defense round. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand on impact. Their jackets control expansion, slowing it to allow for greater penetration and the creation of a deeper, devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is meant for self-defense use.
When you order this box of ammunition from Remington you get 20 defense rounds. That’s just enough to load your gun and spare magazine, so if you want to train with this ammunition – which is highly recommended – order more than one box. Defense rounds produce more recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, which means it takes training to ensure accuracy. One day your life or the lives of your loved ones could rely on whether or not you trained sufficiently. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 1015 feet per second and muzzle energy of 412 foot-pounds. Remington manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lonoke, Arkansas, according to high standards. Order today and start training like you may one day be forced to fight.
