The .40 Smith & Wesson cartridge is the mini 10, or 10mm Short. It was introduced in 1990 to try and minimize the potent recoil of the 10mm Auto while maintaining similar down range ballistics. And while it does provide better knockdown power than the ubiquitous 9mm, it still came with considerable “snap” in recoil, especially with the lighter, faster rounds. For shooters that can tolerate (or even welcome) it, however, the recoil is a small price to pay for the effects in a life or death scenario. Such is the mindset behind Hornady’s 165 grain flex tip bullet: it can leave the muzzle at up to 1175 feet per second and hit with 506 foot pounds of energy. In short it has the hitting power of a .45acp trying real hard to go as fast as a 9mm, and offer a mag capacity closer to the 9 as well. This is a personal defense round.

Hornady’s FTX bullets are designed to deliver superior aerodynamics and feeding with the superior expansion and hitting power of a hollow point. They are selected by law enforcement and private citizens for when each shot needs to deliver results. Also, the polymer tip may negate restrictions against hollow points in some jurisdictions (confirm with local law enforcement).
