Magtech - Full Metal Jacket - 180 Grain 40 Smith & Wesson Ammo - 50 Rounds
The .40 Smith & Wesson continues to be a favored option for semi-automatic pistol in the top three with 9x19 Luger and .45 ACP. The .40 is typically up to half again as heavy as the 9mm trying to go as fast. This created greater terminal energy, which is what the round was designed to do. In fact, the round is descended from the 10mm Auto with a shortened case to mitigate that cartridge’s stout recoil. The slower 180 grain bullets are close to the performance of the 185gr .45 ACP yet provides more room in the magazine for increased capacity. For almost thirty years, the cartridge remained a prominent law enforcement round. Magtech’s 180 grain full metal jacketed round has a muzzle velocity of 1050 feet per second with 441 foot pounds of energy. It is a popular choice for target and training shooting as well as being well suited for use in competitions.
Since 1990 when Magtech joined the Brazilian based CBC group it has become a more prominent presence at the shooting range as more shooters adopt it for their use. Provided with boxer primed, brass cases, shooters with reloading presses find the brand to have additional value.
