You’re always going to be considerably louder than that when you’re firing a 40 S&W, but Hornady’s Subsonic line of ammunition will get your reports just about as soft as they’re able to get – especially if you’ve got a suppressor. This round is loaded to a muzzle velocity of 950 fps, and its propellant is formulated to emit an extremely dull muzzle flash. That’s perfect if you’re hunting varmints with an AR-40 in the nighttime, or want a round that won’t deafen you should you need it for home defense.
This round’s 180 grain XTP bullet is a potent one for hunting or self-defense. The JHP’s jacket features both symmetrical serrations and varying thicknesses throughout its entire length that both serve to promote more uniform and reliable expansion. The XTP’s swaged lead core offers even more controlled expansion, and it is shielded at the nose cavity for proper functioning during both feeding and initial penetration.
Hornady polishes off this round with a new brass case and non-corrosive Boxer primer. Now, make like the wind!
