Another great deal on range ammunition by Prvi Partizan, the import producer that has been gaining fans rapidly on the American market of late. The .40 S&W offering in 180 grains gives you practice options or general target shooting rounds that are hard to beat for the money. The powder is slightly dirtier than some of the competitors, but the heavy powder charge offers very good functional reliability that will help to break in firearms that are new or otherwise stubborn.
Note these are not your typical FMJ truncated nose .40S&W bullets, they are a jacketed hollow point that gives excellent expansion. This is not an ultra-premium round, but it’s also not masquerading as one. Some of the things you take for granted with the ultra-premium rounds may not be part of the build here. For instance these are not a full bonded jacket so there can be some jacket separation. Note: that this is a very competitive price however, with a good projectile for tactical training. Given the price point it may be a smart move to grab a case of two for putting on the shelf for your next defensive pistol course or for practicing for your duty weapon with a similar cartridge to what you use in the magazines for carry.
