An emphasis on penetration and velocity, this premium .40 SW ammunition is for those who believe that penetration and speed are the most important factors to stopping power. The engineered Hornady bullet is good at expansion, but the 155 grain bullet offers a smaller cavity and therefore it doesn’t expand to the extreme ends of the expansion diameter paradigm in every scenario against all target types.
That isn’t a negative, it’s a note. The expansion of the ammunition and the energy dump are well within industry standards for the round and in that grain weight class. The Proven XTP jacketed hollow point is known for its excellent jacket retention and weight retention. The mass on target is fantastic for the load.
A speedy 1180 feet per second velocity and 475 ft. lbs. pf energy as well as heavy penetration in ballistic gelatin testing makes this a very nice option for those who value these specifications.
Rounding out an already great load, this cartridge features a reloadable cartridge case and adheres to very strict quality control to ensure that the shooter gets very consistently behaving ammunition. Suitable for use in any .40S&W firearm from pistol to carbine.
