This cartridge is outfitted with the 40 S&W’s middleweight 155 grain bullet. Primed to a muzzle velocity of 1,205 fps out of a pistol barrel, it delivers good accuracy as it’s able to stay supersonic past 25 yards. At very close range the bullet transfers nearly 500 ft lbs of energy to its target – which is overwhelming – but even at 100 yards it exceeds the minimum energy threshold commonly advised for self-defense. The HTP JHP is designed to deliver up to double diameter expansion. In short, this is a round capable of punching a 4/5” wide hole into its target.
Remington loads their HTP rounds with first-quality brass cases to avert any feeding or extraction issues. Big Green also loads this ammo with their dependable and non-corrosive Kleanbore primers, as well as low-fouling powder to preserve accuracy and functionality of the handgun.
