When the FBI talks, people tend to listen, and when they decided they needed an all-new cartridge after the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, the gun industry responded. Testing of the already-existing 9mm and .45 ACP cartridges was carried out, and when the FBI Training Unit’s Special-Agent-in-Charge John Hall brought his personal 10mm – a Colt Delta Elite – into the mix, they had their answer. The FBI wanted a round with power similar to the 10mm but without the big kick, like the reduced velocity 10mm rounds they’d come up with. Of course, creating those reduced velocity 10mm’s used less powder, which created excess airspace within the case, and Smith and Wesson jumped to the logical conclusion: simply shorten the case a bit, since it wasn’t needed with that powder load. And the .40 S&W was born.
These Winchester .40 S&W rounds aren’t just rounds, they’re from Winchester’s Ranger Law Enforcement line. They’re made to the high standards of law enforcement, and now you, too, can load your personal carry weapon with these excellent defense rounds. Winchester has over 150 years of experience creating and manufacturing firearms and ammunition, in fact, they’re one of the originals in the firearms world. They made the lever-action rifle known as The Gun That Won the West and from there the rest is, as we say, firearm’s history. Winchester is truly an all-American company, and their products speak for themselves.
This is heavy 180 grain ammunition, so it has exceptional strength. As JHP’s these rounds deliver impressive rapid energy transfer and begin to mushroom immediately upon impact and their jacketing controls that expansion for deeper penetration than the average hollow point. These rounds create devastating wound channels and the one-shot stopping power you want with a muzzle velocity of 1010 feet per second and muzzle energy of 408 foot-pounds. They’re made for self-defense, and if you carry concealed or use your handgun for home defense they’ll get the job done. There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of American-made ammunition. Load your .40 with defense rounds made by a legend by buying Winchester Ranger.
