This bullet offers reliable performance and a relatively affordable price.

How Powerful Is A .40 S&W?

In terms of power, the 40 S&W cartridge was developed as a compromise between the 9mm and .45 ACP rounds. This round combines moderate recoil with the stopping power of a larger caliber. As a result, the 180gr FMJ round packs a moderate punch, providing good penetration and stopping power without excessive recoil.

Affordable 40 S&W Ammo

Norma 40 S&W 180gr FMJ is a reliable and versatile choice for shooters looking for an affordable and effective ammunition option for range use.

Will .40 S&W Ammo Fit A 44 Mag Pistol?

No, .40 S&W ammunition is not compatible with a .44 Magnum pistol.  Attempting to fire .40 S&W ammunition in a .44 Magnum pistol can be dangerous and may cause damage to the firearm. It is important to always use the correct ammunition for your specific firearm.

40 S&W Ammo Ballistics

The Norma 40 S&W ammo has a relatively flat trajectory, with a muzzle velocity of around 1,150 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 485 foot-pounds. It typically has a bullet weight of 180 grains and a bullet diameter of 0.4 inches.

As the bullet travels downrange, it experiences a gradual decrease in velocity and energy due to air resistance. At 50 yards, the velocity of the bullet is around 952 feet per second and the energy is around 380 foot-pounds. At 100 yards, the velocity drops to approximately 832 feet per second with an energy of 291 foot-pounds.

The bullet’s design and weight contribute to its ballistic profile. The 180-grain bullet also has a higher mass, which retains more energy downrange and may have better penetration capability.

Overall, the ballistic profile of Norma 40 S&W ammo is well-suited for self-defense and target shooting purposes, with good accuracy and stopping power within a reasonable distance. However, it may not be the best option for long-distance or precision shooting.
