Events in the late 1980's inspired the FBI to find a stronger, more effective service round than the .38 and 9 calibers then in service. The well-known and established result, after a series of tweaking of options that were realized to be too powerful, is the .40 Smith & Wesson. Weighing almost half again as much as the standard 9, the 165gr FMJ .40 bullet is fired almost as fast at 1130 feet per second out of the gun with 468 foot pounds of muzzle energy. THIS is the snappy .40 that gives penetration and kinetic energy deliverance with a fair amount of snap in recoil. THIS is the round that .40 shooters love. So much so that even as many law enforcement agencies return to the 9, many officers, as well as competitive and private shooters, remain loyal to the .40 Smith & Wesson: they just LIKE it.
