The .40 S&W is a fairly young cartridge, having just hit the market in 1990. The cartridge is the end result of the events that occurred during the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout, which was a firefight in the streets of Miami between a pair of serial bank robbers and a group of FBI agents. During that firefight two FBI agents were killed, one of whom, Ben Grogan, was a talented sharpshooter but lost his glasses during the action. The bank robbers were eventually killed by the remaining agents, but the entire ordeal had taught the FBI that they badly needed to come up with a more powerful round. The end result was the .40 S&W.
These .40 S&W rounds are pretty lightweight at just 130 grain, and being lighter weight are able to fly down-range at greater speeds. They’re SCHP – Solid Copper Hollow Point – rounds, so they’re lead-free, which is good for both your lungs and your gun. On impact these rounds begin to expand immediately, creating a devastating wound track. Each round flies down-range at the impressive muzzle velocity of 1190 feet per second and impacts with a muzzle energy of 409 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense.
