40 S&W – 180 gr FMJ – Federal American Eagle – 1000 Rounds
Federal American Eagle ammo is inexpensive, reliable and accurate–the perfect combination for target shooting or training.
These .40 S&W cartridges come in a volume priced case of 1,000 and fire a heavy 180 grain full metal jacket bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1,000 feet per second.
This results in typical .40 Smith & Wesson ballistics including great accuracy and substantial recoil.
This ammo is loaded in Anoka, Minnesota using non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.
The 40 was developed in the late Eighties in the wake of the tragic FBI Miami shootout.
It displaced the .38 Special as the round of choice, and paved the way for semi-automatic pistols to be the primary sidearm preferred by military, police, and for self-defense.
In Paul M. Barrett’s book “Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun”, he tells the story of how Gaston Glock was the first to market with a semi-automatic pistol for the newly designed .40 Smith & Wesson caliber; the Glock 22.
The popularity of the Glock 22 and its adoption by so many Law Enforcement agencies in the US made the .40 S&W one of the most popular handgun calibers in history.
Much to the chagrin of Smith & Wesson, they played second fiddle to Glock on the caliber they designed in conjunction with Winchester.
