Blazer Brass 40 S&W 180 Grain FMJ
The .40 Smith & Wesson was introduced in 1990 and quickly took the number three spot in popular US sidearm, semi-automatic calibers. In its performance loads, it is a bullet that weighs half again as much as a 9mm Luger trying darn hard to go as fast, delivering more ballistic energy into the target. Its heavier loads come close to the light and fast .45 ACP loads, usually offering higher capacity as the benefit. The lighter loads, however, have the “snappy” recoil that the caliber is popularly known for. The 180 grain full metal jacketed round by CCI, one of the “heavier” bullet weights, has the ability to leave the muzzle at 985 feet per second with 388 foot-pounds of energy. This is an ideal range training, target shooting, or even competition class cartridge.
Cascade Cartridge Inc’s reputation was built on their rimfire line of ammunition, but their centerfire line is no less impressive for its dependability of performance. The Blazer Brass line is both their economical line and loaded with boxer primed cases that are reloadable. The 1000 round case is ideal for keeping on hand for surprise range days or for that training course coming up.
