These cartridges fire a heavy 180 grain jacketed hollow point bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1,000 feet per second. As is typical for the .40 Smith & Wesson, these rounds produce snappy recoil which can be managed with sufficient training--something you should be able to work on with this volume priced case of 500 rounds!
Federal Hydra-Shok ammo is loaded in Anoka, Minnesota using non-corrosive Boxer primers and nickel-plated brass cases. Nickel plating makes the ammo more durable, a useful property for ammo that is carried often and shot little.
