Winchester Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 165 Grain 40 Smith & Wesson Ammo - 600 Rounds
40 SW ammo presents a bullet that is approximately twice as heavy as a 9mm Luger while trying darn hard to go as fast can deliver considerable terminal ballistic energy down range: that was the intention behind the development of the .40 Smith & Wesson cartridge in 1990. US law enforcement was desperate for a more potent sidearm cartridge they even momentarily adopted the 10mm Auto before agent shooting scores suffered considerably due to the effects excessive recoil had on follow up shots and initial flinches (not all agents like to shoot…. [shrug]). Hence the 10mm short, or the .40 S&W. Still capable of delivering potent results down range, its recoil was far more comfortable if still a bit more than the easy shooting 9mm.
Winchester’s flat nosed, 165 grain full metal jacket round can leave the muzzle at 1060 ft per sec with 412 ft lbs behind it. This 600 round case is ideal for keeping on hand in preparation for the inevitable qualifying sessions LEOs are subject to, or for simply target practicing with: the energy this cartridge generates approximates service ammo without the inevitable stress on equipment and distress on muscles in having to fire hundreds of rounds to keep proficiencies up.
Winchester ammunition continues to provide quality and dependability to American shooters, both casual and professional, and remains a trusted name in the industry. Their boxer primed cases remain sought after by both private and commercial ammo remanufacturers, and if those in the manufacturing industry trust them, so can you.
