The .40 S&W is the sweet spot of the ammunition world, possessing power similar to that of the 10mm with almost identical muzzle flip, drift, and drop as compared to the 9mm. It was created after the infamous 1986 FBI Miami Shootout which took place in the city streets between a team of FBI agents and a pair of serial bank robbers. In the course of events two agents were killed before the robbers were stopped, and the FBI decided they needed better ammunition for their agents.
These .40 S&W rounds are 165 grain which is medium-weight for the cartridge size. It’s heavy enough to make a nice hole on impact and light enough to move down-range a bit faster. These are FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) rounds, so they do not expand on impact. FMJ rounds are prone to over-penetration, so make sure you follow the golden rules of gun safety including knowing your target and what is beyond it. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 1050 feet per second and muzzle energy of 404 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition from Estate. Estate is actually part of Federal, which was founded in 1922. Federal ammunition has seen many uses over the years including quite a bit of use in the US military as well as use by Olympic shooters who won gold medals while using it. Manufacturing takes place at their established factory in Anoka, Minnesota. These rounds are made in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, so they can be reloaded.
