It was 1986, and serial bank robbers William Russell Matix and Michael Lee Platt were about to take their last stand in Miami, Florida. They were up against the FBI, and when the dust settled, five agents were wounded, and the robbers were dead – but at an incredibly high price: FBI agent and sharpshooter Ben Grogan and FBI agent Jerry L. Dove had been killed. In the wake of the death of two of their brightest and best, the FBI decided a new cartridge was needed, and Smith & Wesson was the one to create it. Testing originally involved the 9mm and .45 ACP, but then the FBI Firearms Training Unit’s Special Agent-in-Charge John Hall included his personal weapon, a Colt Delta Elite 10mm semi-auto. After lengthy testing and experimentation, the .40 S&W was born.
This particular .40 S&W ammunition is manufactured by the legendary Remington Arms Plant. Founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington, the company has had almost two centuries now to hone their craft. They have also taken care to keep production in the U.S.; their headquarters have been in Ilion, New York, since the 1800’s, and of the half-dozen Southern-based plants, most small-arms ammunition is produced at the Lonoke, Arkansas, plant. They are also the oldest plant in the U.S. still manufacturing their original product as well as the oldest constantly operating manufacturer in North America.
At 180 grain these are fairly heavy rounds, and as JHP’s they’re ideal for self-defense. Jacketed hollow points have stronger-than-average cases which helps to prevent lead fouling and are capable of delivering impressive energy transfer and begin to expand immediately upon impact, creating a devastating wound track. These rounds have a muzzle velocity of 1,015 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 412 foot-pounds. There are 500 rounds in the box, so you’ll have a nice stash for personal protection and to train with as well. When it comes to defense rounds, you can count on Remington to provide quality and dependability; you bring the shot placement, and let Remington do the rest.
