- Q & A
The .40 S&W is actually one of the youngest cartridges out there having first been introduced in 1990. It came into being following the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout during which serial bank robbers engaged FBI agents in a gunfight in the streets of Miami, killing two of the agents and wounding the others. Assessing the devastation after the fact the FBI decided they needed to put more powerful ammunition in the hands of their agents, only they didn’t want the rounds to have the bigger recoil of 10mm and .45 ACP rounds. Thus the .40 S&W was born.
At 180 grain these are considered heavy rounds for the .40 S&W. Being heavier means they’ll impact targets with significant force, which is exactly what you want from a self-defense round. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and expand on impact. The jackets control expansion, slowing it down, allowing the bullets to penetrate more deeply, creating more traumatic wound cavities. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 1015 feet per second and muzzle energy of 412 foot-pounds. These rounds are meant for self-defense.
There are 50 defense rounds in this box of Remington ammunition. That’s enough ammunition to keep your gun and spare magazine loaded and ready for personal protection purposes, but if you want to get some serious practice in, you’ll want to buy extra boxes. Defense rounds produce more recoil than target rounds, so if you want to be confident of your accuracy, especially in the case of follow-up shots, you need to train using your chosen defense rounds. Remington manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lonoke, Arkansas. Protect your loved ones with reliable defense rounds by buying Remington.
