- Q & A
The .40 S&W is the direct result of something that happened in the 1980s in Florida. It was the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, and it affected both the FBI and the gun world at large. On that day two serial bank robbers led a team of FBI agents on a car chase that ended in a shootout in the streets of Miami. Although the robbers were shot early on they continued to fight and shot all the agents but one before succumbing to their own wounds. Two of the agents were killed on the spot, and one of those agents was Ben Grogan, a known sharpshooter. The FBI decided their agents needed more powerful ammo, and in 1990, the 40 S&W was born.
These particular .40 S&W rounds are manufactured by Remington. Each round weighs in at 180 grain making them fairly weighty for the cartridge size. Being heavier means they’re capable of striking targets with greater force, which is just what you want from a defense round. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Because they’re jacketed, expansion is controlled more than in standard HPs, allowing for deeper penetration and a larger, more devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is designed for self-defense use.
