The relatively tame recoil is a great hallmark of this American Gunner .40 S&W ammunition from Hornady. It offers potent stopping power without being overpowered at the shooter level. The combination of premium components in the build of this American Gunner line with the XTP projectiles means you get a very high quality round, capable of self-defense but built within a more mainstream channel of acceptance by a wide range of shooters. It’s a solid choice for practice work or when you need a reliable, not super strong .40S&W ammo that won’t hurt to shoot.
950 feet per second of muzzle velocity offers good penetration and moderate recoil profile, while offering secure expansion of the projectile, proven against many obstacles in verified testing. The 361 ft. lbs. of energy delivered at the barrel may not seem like much compared to some hotter loads, but it is sufficient for the purposes that most shooters will use the round for, including threat mitigation and personal defense.
When buying this ammunition from Hornady, more than anything you’re buying into the Hornady name, the accomplishments it has and the consistency they deliver throughout their entire product line. The load is quality, with quality components and good performance. The projectile is a proven winner. The reloadable brass with Boxer primer makes this easily re-usable and adds value as well.
