Ammo Overview

Bullets - 180 grain full metal jacket (FMJ)
Casings - Boxer-primed brass
Quantity - 20 boxes, 50 rounds per box
Muzzle Velocity - 985 fps


The 40 S&W has gained in popularity over the years, and is commonly thought of as a balance between the 9mm and 45 ACP. This is because the 40 S&W is faster than the 45 auto, and heavier than the 9mm.

This Blazer Brass ammunition in 40 S&W is loaded with a 180 grain full metal jacket bullet, which is perfect for range training, but should not be used for self defense. 180 grain bullets are a heavy but common weight for 40 S&W, and are a great bullet weight for full size handguns, and will result in moderate recoil in small pistols.

A: Thanks for reaching out! 180 grains is a fine weight for a 40 S&W self-defense bullet, but I strongly advise against using non-expanding FMJ bullets for self-defense. You want JHP bullets, which expand as they penetrate soft tissue in order to (A) deliver a wider diameter wound cavity, (B) spread more of the bullet's energy outward instead of just forward, and (C) reduce the chance of overpenetration that could harm an innocent bystander.

I'd strongly recommend using Federal HST ammo for self-defense. This is excellent, police grade ammo that many consider the absolute best for personal protection:

A: These 40 S&W rounds are factory new loads from Blazer. All components used are non corrosive. The brass is boxer primed for reloading if desired.
