40 Cal Bullets

Looking for bulk 40 cal bullets for reloading? Once you’ve got the right ones, the rest is easy!

The packages for sale on this page are only the bullets. If you'd like loaded rounds ready to shoot, please visit our 40 cal ammo page here.

40 S&W bullets for reloading usually weigh between 125 and 180 grains, although heavyweight 200 grain bullets are also available. A good 40 S&W bullet is also a good 10mm bullet, making .400 diameter bullets a versatile investment. The 40 S&W’s max pressure is lower at 35,000 psi, giving it a muzzle velocity anywhere between approximately 985 and 1,300 fps. Load data for jacketed bullets, lead bullets, copper bullets, and frangible bullets are all readily available for this popular handgun cartridge. With the right powder for your bullet weight and some small pistol primers at your disposal, reloading your own 40 S&W is just a matter of work. (We like to play Joe Don Baker movies in the background while we practice our science at the reloading bench.)

You’ll want to be careful about reusing brass while reloading 40 S&W. It’s a powerful cartridge, so cases that aren’t properly supported by a semi-auto during ignition often wind up bulging. A common resizing die won’t fix bulging completely, but a specialized one like the Redding GR-X is able to.

These bullets are jacketed hollow-points (JHPs) and are great for self-defense loads due to their expansion on impact which will open up a wider wound channel and have more efficient terminal effect on target. These bullets weigh in at 165 grains which is lightweight for both calibers and can be utilized for lower recoil practice loads with the proper data. Zero Bullets is an Alabama-based manufacturer that takes pride in their quality and offers great projectiles at low cost.

    Well made

    I shoot my 40 more than my other pistols, these seem to shoot very well very accurate, and great price for a jacketed bullet.

    Review by Nate (Posted on 9/12/2023)

    Best Kept Secret

    High quality 165 grain 40 caliber projectiles, with a deep hollow point. Bullets we’re well packed and double boxed. Loaded up 50 rounds in 10mm at 1250 fps. Fed and cycled perfectly with good accuracy. I would buy these again. I got them on sale, which was great, and the shipping was fair. If you look around on the internet these are a good bargain when compared with all of the big name bullet makers. Good job on keeping these in stock!

    FedEx lost the shipment

    Thad in customer support was great. Called and reported lost shipment. A claim was filed with FedEx and Widener's promptly shipped again. I received order in three days and on a Sunday to boot! Great service! Ordered 1000 40 S&W caliber 165 grain JHP Zero Bullets. They look very uniform and well made. Loaded up 100 and test fired 5 shots with no problems. Load data: 5.2 grains Accurate #2 COL=1.125.

    Very straight shooting bullets

    Review by Great Bullets (Posted on 11/7/2019)

    Chamber well and shoot accurately

    These chamber properly in a Glock 20 and seem pretty consistent, probably a lot more than I am. I shot 100 rounds out of this batch with no failures to feed. If the jackets were a little nicer looking I'd give them a five for quality, but they look kind of tarnished and blotchy. They shoot just fine, though. For plinkers they are totally acceptable.

    Review by Dave (Posted on 10/1/2019)

    The bullets load as they should and are accurate.

    These bullets are great for making practice and match ammo for your 10mm Auto and .40 S&W pistols. These .400 inch diameter projectiles from Zero Bullets possess a full metal copper jacket (FMJ) and a truncated cone (TC) shape. FMJ-TC bullets are ideal for matches and practice because their overall shape allows for proper feeding while their flat noses leave easily discerned holes in paper and cardboard targets for easy scoring or group measurement. In addition, these rounds weigh in at 200 grains which is on the heavier side of either caliber and easily supported by widely available load data. Zero Bullets manufacture their products in Cullman, Alabama and are well-known to reloaders for their consistent quality.

    bullet performance

    ordered the 40/10mm zero fmj tc for use in my glock AND my sw 610.
    was not disappointed! for a non-expanding max penetration semi-auto round this would be hared to beat! a max load in my g20 put a bullet through 9 milk jugs of water and zipped off into the sunset!! impressive!

    Review by bob (Posted on 10/2/2023)

    Great for 10mm practice loads

    Great for M&P 10mm practice loads. I use Titegroup for my 1000 fps practice loads.

    Review by Andy (Posted on 9/8/2022)

    Great 10mm heavy loads. I will buy again

    Excellent very happy with these bullets. I do both sonic and subsonic rounds, work well! Good price, timely shipping, will buy again. Both 180 grain and 200!!!!

    Review by KHans (Posted on 5/9/2022)

    Great so far

    I've loaded about 150 of them so far and they are very consistent and shoot great! 10/10 would buy more

    Review by Joe (Posted on 1/23/2022)

    Outstanding bullet and price

    I ordered these bullets just a few days ago and received them on 6-24-16. I loaded some up at three different powder charges of AA9 using once fired brass. At 10 yards the lowest loading gave me an average velocity of 1165fps for an energy level of 603ft/lbs. Holy cow! That should take care of about anything in the lower 48 states. Accuracy was outstanding; out of 5 shots at 10 yds 4 made one jagged hole and the 5th was just 1/8" away.

    Save some cash when you create your own 10mm and .40 S&W rounds for practice and matches. These projectiles from Zero Bullets use proper copper jackets in a full metal jacket truncated cone (FMJ-TC) shape. Truncated cone style bullets are similar to a semi-wadcutter with a sloping ogive and flat nose which leaves nice clean holes in targets for clean scoring and group measurement. These bullets weigh 180 grains which is ideal for many recipes of both calibers. Zero Bullets is an Alabama manufacturer that has a great reputation for offering consistent projectiles at a low cost.

    This is not loaded ammunition. You cannot fire these components bullets right out of the box. You have to load them first, just like you have to cook a Thanksgiving turkey before you can eat it.

    Are you loading your own 40 S&W self-defense loads? Are you loading your own 10mm hunting loads? Or are you just trying to create the most accurate .40 cal cartridges possible? It all starts with the Hornady eXtreme Terminal Performance.

    When you load these 0.400” diameter 200 grain bullets, you get to appreciate just how many features Hornady is able to pack into a single drawn gilding metal jacket. The XTP’s protective jacket doesn’t let its swaged lead core touch the feed ramp, and it also keeps the nose cavity’s rim from deforming during initial impact. That preserves the jacketed hollow point’s ability to produce wide terminal expansion. The XTP’s jacket is notched, and it becomes increasingly thinner the closer it gets to the rim – two features which also promote more reliable expansion. Its core uniformity and jacket concentricity also give the XTP awesome accuracy. You will not be misusing these bullets if you only load them in match rounds!

    Hornady is one of America’s most respected bullet manufacturers. Uniform in weight and dimensions, their XTP represents the old Nebraskan company’s very best work!

    QUALITY!!

    Quite frankly these bullets performed exactly as I expected. Loaded them for my 10mm Glock G40 long slide with Blue Dot. Nice grouping at 50 feet. ( indoor range ) Will hunt whitetail and hogs with these bullets.

    Review by Rodney (Posted on 7/25/2017)

    Makes a great round

    Have used these in loading 40 S&W rounds and have been very pleased with the results; plan to also load some 10mm rounds with them to see if they perform as well there.
