A reliable 40 S&W ammunition for close quarters combat and other personal defense specific needs and for duty weapons. There are myriad subtle differences for the build of this Hornady ammunition. It’s made for self-defense and duty weapons; and they have thought of everything to try to optimize it for such conditions. You can start with the reduced risk of over-penetration provided by a reduced velocity. This is brought about through a powder formulation change that reduces muzzle flash in low light conditions and reduces the speed of the projectile just enough to keep it effective but not over-penetrating.
The nickle plated brass casing offers great lubricity and stays corrosion free, giving reliable feeding and extraction in all firearms. The proven XTP bullet used is a 180 grain projectile that has a history of performance with excellent uniformity and reliability in expansion. At 180 grain, the bullet moves out of the barrel traveling at 950 feet per second and provides 361 ft. lbs. of energy, which is sufficient as a threat stopper, but does minimize risk for collateral damage and overpenetration in rural environments. The underlying story is compelling too: Hornady operates one of the tightest sets of protocols for their manufacturing process, which results in producing some of the tightest tolerances in the business.
