This is a high performance STANDARD PRESSURE 40 S&W loading, which means it is safe to fire in all 40 S&W firearms that are in normal operating condition.

The light weight 140gr. all copper Barnes bullet will mushroom readily, yet penetrate as deeply as a typical 180gr. JHP style bullet, while generating the low recoil and fast velocities of a light weight projectile. This aids in fast/accurate follow-up shots. Expect roughly 13 to 14 inches of penetration in flesh and bone.

This load utilizes a flash suppressed powder, which gives the shooter an important tactical advantage as most shootings in the US occur in low light when the criminal element is most active. Firing to save your life in the dark is likely if you find yourself forced to fire. Blinding yourself with your own gunfire, after the first shot, leaves you very vulnerable.

As always, we have used real world firearms to generate our advertised velocities. We feel the industry wide practice of generating advertised velocities from extra long test barrels is dishonest as the actual customer will not be able to achieve those velocities in real world occurrences, where it matters. With Buffalo Bore ammunition, you’ll get the velocities we advertise, with real over-the-counter firearms.

  1. 1311 fps -- Caspian 1911, 5 inch barrel
  2. 1159 fps -- Taurus PT99, 4.7 inch barrel
  3. 1172 fps -- Glock Model 23, 4 inch barrel

You’ll note one above instance where a shorter barrel gives higher velocities than a longer barrel. This shows that there is often more to internal ballistics, than barrel length alone.

This load fed perfectly in all test pistols and exhibited very good accuracy in all test pistols.

I fired this round into a Clear Ballistics FBI block. The clothing barrier was a layer of denim, a sweatshirt and a heavy t shirt. From a Glock 23 the round penetrated 13.5 inches and expanded to .76inches. A dhp
perfect result
