Details

The .40 S&W was created following the 1986 FBI Miami Shootout involving multiple federal agents and a pair of ruthless serial bank robbers, although calling them robbers discounts the fact that they were heavily armed, dangerous, and cold-blooded killers. The shootout took place right in the middle of a busy street, and when the dust settled two agents were dead, one of whom had been a crack shot and talented marksman. His glasses had broken during the firefight, and although some of his rounds continued to strike home his blindness became his death. The FBI decided they wanted more powerful rounds after that day, and although it took four years the .40 S&W became the answer to their request.

The .40 S&W is the sweet spot of the ammunition world with knockdown power similar to that of its parent cartridge, the 10mm, and recoil more like that of the smaller 9mm cartridge. It also has drift and drop nearly identical to the 9mm; overall the .40 S&W is an impressive round, and it’s capable of significant force. These rounds are made by Federal, a company that’s been in business since 1922 and has extensive experience producing high-quality rounds.

At 165 grain these are moderately weighted for the cartridge size. They’re Total Metal Jacket rounds, so they’re not going to expand on impact, and the bullet is fully enclosed, so there won’t be any lead released into the air when you squeeze the trigger. Each round flies down-range with a muzzle velocity of 1130 feet per second and hits home with a muzzle energy of 468 foot-pounds. This ammunition is ideal for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. There are 50 target rounds in this box of ammunition. Federal manufactures these rounds at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and hit the range with your sweet handgun. You know you want to.
