There’s a basic order you can follow when cleaning your handgun’s barrel to ensure it’s really clean and to keep it simple. Gather your supplies: cotton patches, bore brush, cleaning rod with appropriate attachments, solvent, and oil. First, put a patch on your cleaning rod, wet it with solvent, and run it through your barrel to remove surface residue. Then run your properly-sized brush through for the real scrubbing; you’re going to need to do this more than once or twice. After that’s done, wet some more patches and run them through again. If you think you’re done, run a dry patch through. If it comes back clean, you’re done. If it’s still dirty, do it all again. Finally, swab it with good quality gun oil, but not too much, just a light coating; it shouldn’t drip. Cleaning your gun is an important part of extending its life, so you want to take the time to keep it clean (and don’t forget to clean the rest).
This ammunition for your .40 S&W is made by the Tula Arms Plant in Tula, Russia. Tula has been manufacturing ammunition for more than 300 years, which is some serious longevity. They’ve got experience, and then some, and they’re well-known for producing economically-priced ammunition on a global level. Many military and law enforcement groups in various countries use Tula for training purposes. All of Tula’s ammunition is manufactured to SAAMI or CIP specifications.
This is 180 grain, so it’s considered heavy for the .40 S&W. A heavier round means a bigger impact, and although heavy rounds tend to move a bit slower, they make up for it with stopping power. These are FMJ rounds specifically meant for target practice, tactical training, and plinking, and each round as a muzzle velocity of 990 feet per second. Tula manufactures this ammunition using a bimetal layering process, alternating thin layers of copper and steel to make steel cases. The finished rounds are coated with their special polymer formula for dependable feeding and ejecting as well as to make them non-corrosive. There are 50 target rounds in this box. If you want to feed your .40 without emptying your wallet, give Tula a try.
(This ammunition is steel-cased. Some ranges do not allow rounds with steel cases, so make sure you double check before trying to use this ammunition at your area range.)
