A more than reasonable candidate from Winchester as your single choice for the .40S&W cartridge. This 180 grain jacketed hollow point is a quality range round and an above average self-defense round in one, with a price to shoot that is on par with the rest of the range rounds. That means that combined with Winchester’s reputation for reliability and the above average ballistics of the round, this becomes a very viable candidate indeed.
1020 feet per second velocity and 416 pound feet of energy delivered out of the muzzle makes this a very solid round for the 180 grain load. The clean brass and Boxer primer makes it easily reloadable and the powder, while slightly dirtier than some competitors has enough punch to help the round function flawlessly in most mainstream firearms, including carbines.
Winchester has over 150 years of history producing ammunition and firearms. Their reputation is above reproach in most aspects of the firearms community, and when you factor in the universal love for the not-quite-but-should-be-patented “Winchester White Box” named ammunition you have a real winner on your hands. The best option is to stock up and keep it for your range trips. If you decide to use it as your single round for all things in .40S&W, then you won’t be disappointed.
