This 40 S&W cartridge very closely matches the feel and point of aim of a self-defense round, but its 165 grain total metal jacket bullet means it won’t bleed your wallet dry. The beauty of a TMJ is that its base is encapsulated with copper, something an FMJ doesn’t offer. The searing heat of ignition therefore can not vaporize the bullet’s core, so you won’t thicken the air with toxic lead as you’re mastering your pistol at an indoor range. Because a TMJ’s base doesn’t change during ignition it also promotes better accuracy, and this bullet’s flat nose profile is ideal for paper targets!
This round is outfitted with CCI’s non-corrosive Boxer primer and a charge of clean burning propellant. Together they launch the bullet out of a 4” barrel at a velocity of 1,050 fps for a 404 ft lbs muzzle energy – just like a self-defense load. Speer’s high quality brass case is a boon for any semi-auto’s functionality, be it handgun or AR-40, and is a great choice for handloading as well!
