These .40 S&W rounds utilize 180-grain VHP projectiles which match a wide range of practice and duty loads. The VHP (versatile hollow point) hosts a wide-mouth cavity and covered base that produces expansion on impact but is inexpensive enough for general range work. Copper jacketing at the rear of the bullet reduces fouling while the elongated format of a hollow point enhances accuracy by way of increased rifling contact. Each bullet is crimped into a reloadable brass casing that is equipped with clean-igniting Boxer primer from Federal's own factory. During entry into a target, the bullet's expansion will help create a larger wound cavity while passing kinetic energy into vital zones in order to end a threat more quickly.
