40 Cal Ammo

.40 Smith & Wesson ammo is a widely used cartridge for concealed carry and law enforcement. Although it has a reputation for severe recoil, the .40 S&W offers excellent ballistic potential in trained hands. It is based on a 10mm Auto casing shortened to fit into handguns originally designed for the 9mm Luger.

Most 40 cal loads fire a 165 or 180 grain bullet at 950-1100 feet per second; for those who want more reliable expansion or are concerned with overpenetration, lighter bullets in the 135-155 grain range (with corresponding increases in velocity) are also available.

Many manufacturers offer handguns in this caliber, in part due to its intentional compatibility with existing 9mm designs. Notable .40 S&W pistols include Smith & Wesson's own M&P40, Ruger's SR40C, the Beretta Px4 Storm, the Springfield XD, and even some variants of the Browning Hi-Power.

You'll find in-stock 40 cal ammo for sale here at Widener's from great brands like Federal, Winchester, PMC, Magtech and more so you can focus on your next range trip and not worry about the reliability of your rounds.

    Lawman ammunition is designed as a training companion to Speer's acclaimed Gold Dot series, although it can be used effectively for range practice by anyone. Each Lawman load is calibrated to perform with the same external ballistics and recoil as its Gold Dot counterpart, but without the need for an expensive hollow point projectile.

    Each .40 S&W cartridge in this bulk priced case of 1,000 fires a 180 grain total metal jacket (TMJ) bullet. Total metal jacket bullets provide full encapsulation of the lead core and are therefore safer for indoor shooting that full metal jacket ones. Due to the method by which they are manufactured, TMJ projectiles are not significantly more expensive than FMJ ones.

    Speer ammo is loaded in Idaho and uses non-corrosive primers and reloadable brass cases.

    Federal HST ammunition was designed to perform well in law enforcement tests and serves as a formidable defensive load for police officers and CCW holders alike. HST bullets have a skived tip design that delivers effective six-petal expansion capable of stopping assailants quickly.

    Each .40 S&W cartridge in this box of 50 fires a 180 grain jacketed hollow point bullet at 1,010 feet per second. As with most loads in this caliber, this ammunition is powerful and produces flat trajectories, excellent accuracy, and relatively stiff recoil.

    You don’t want any fancy marketing gimmicks when it comes to your self-defense ammo. You just want something that works. That’s why you want Remington’s HTP label 40 S&W ammo, which is designed to hit hard and then keep hitting harder!

    This cartridge is loaded with a lightweight 155 grain projectile, so it’s able to achieve a 1,205 fps muzzle velocity and strike a close-range target with over 450 ft lbs of energy – about 50% more energy than the minimum typically advised for self-defense. As the bullet’s nose cavity fills with soft tissue, its notched jacket splits apart to promote the most uniform possible terminal expansion. This bullet can double its diameter before coming to a stop!

    Remington’s premium brass cases won’t choke up a semi-auto with a poorly timed FTF or FTE, and their Kleanbore primers are both reliable and non-corrosive. The old American manufacturer’s fine-tuned quality assurance protocol ensures your sidearm will work when you most need it.

    Federal Premium provides perfect projectiles for your protection. Their Law Enforcement rounds are made specifically for law enforcement agencies and are also fantastic for self defense.

    After the FBI shootout in Miami in 1986, the FBI adopted the 40 S&W as their service round. Although they have moved on to a different round now, the 40 S&W is a great for both low recoil and stopping power.

    These HST jacketed hollow point rounds are great for self protection with their massive expansion and stopping power. These 165 grain rounds fire at 1130 feet per second and are sure to stop any intruder.

    Underwood makes high-quality self-defense ammunition at their factory in Illinois. They load these 40 S&W cartridges with sleek nickel-plated brass cases to prevent a poorly timed FTF or FTE from compromising your ability to defend yourself. Nickel’s reflectivity also makes Underwood’s cartridge easier to see in the chamber under poor lighting, as well as naturally resistant to corrosion. And because so many personal protection scenarios play out in the dark where a bright flash could blind you, Underwood exclusively loads their self-defense ammo with flash-suppressed powder.

    This round’s 150 grain jacketed hollow point bullet is no slouch, either. Nosler’s Sporting Handgun projectile excels at neutralizing a threat courtesy of its skived and tapered jacket, which enables the solid lead core’s deep-set nose cavity to unleash rapid yet uniform expansion over a wide range of velocities. The Sporting Handgun’s jacket additionally protects the rim of its nose cavity, which prevents soft lead from creating a feeding jam in a semi-auto. Also good for hunting with an AR-40!
