In 1990, the .40 S&W round was developed as a compromise between 9x19mm Parabellum and Jeff Coopers favorite 10mm cartridge. During that period, the 10mm had become quite popular with Federal Agencies, but some FBI agents could not work with the bigger, faster 10mm round and the recoil it produced. They determined they wanted a round that could impart similar damage, but without the significant recoil. Then, the FBI requested that S&W to carry the project to the finish line, and they did... soon after the .40 S&W hit market.

I purchased this ammo mainly for the sale price . . . but I was very surprised when I fired some at the range today. I have never shot a 2 inch 10 shot group with any of the other brands of ammo I've used (American Eagle, PMC, even Speer Gold Dot).
Weapon is a Sigsauer P229 0.40 cal
Distance was 20 yards fired from a bench rest. Other ammo fired for comparison was 155 and 165 gr round neither of which matched the accuracy of this 180 gr round when fired under the same conditions. Clean burning and accurate! great day!
