The .40 S&W load was developed in 1990 as a middle ground between the 9mm Luger cartridge and the 10mm cartridge. At the time, the 10mm had become extremely popular with the FBI, but there were some in the FBI that could not handle the bigger faster 10mm round. The FBI decided it wanted something that could still hit hard and do similar damage, but with less recoil. After a lot of T&E and R&D, the FBI figured out what combo of factors and components worked best for what they required. Then they asked S&W to carry the torch the rest of the way, and the .40 S&W was born. The .40 caliber bullet is 0.40” inches in diameter which happens to be 10mm in diameter as well. Coincidence, don’t you think? The .40 caliber bullet is available in multiple grain sizes, from 105 to 200 grains. Many departments are still using the .40 S&W today.
