When it comes to self-defense shooting with 40 cal ammo, there are multiple factors to take into consideration —- from caliber to gun to carry method, but perhaps one of the most important is the type of ammunition. Although most shooters train using target rounds it isn’t a good idea to load your daily carry weapon with them. Target rounds are more affordable and designed to simply strike the target, penetrate it, and keep on going. Defense rounds cost a bit more and are made to expand on impact while simultaneously decelerating, giving you the benefit of both a large wound track and prevention of over-penetration, which serves to protect innocent bystanders.
These defense rounds are made for your 40 S&W. At 165 grain they’re moderately heavy for the cartridge size but not extremely heavy so they’re able to move a bit faster while hitting harder than their lightweight counterparts. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP, rounds and begin to expand at the moment of impact as described above. Their jackets improve overall bullet integrity and also aid in more controlled expansion, creating a deeper wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1040 feet per second and muzzle energy of 396 foot-pounds.
