Thread: .40 cal ammo or whatever you use.

  1. #1

    .40 cal ammo or whatever you use.

    this is mostly for anyone who shoots .40 cal, but is also for anyone who shoots. just wondering what load you use for your ccw or home defence weapon. i use 155 grain federal hst or 155g speer golddots. in the sub compact i use 165g critical defence from horandy. great load with alot of knockdown power.

    so what do you use and why?? thanks all.

    anyone use extream shock or powerball or blue saftey slug??? what do you think about it. i have powerball, but have not used it..... and the extream shock looks awesome.

    I'm a fan of the lighter 155 grain or 135 grain loads in the .40 Smith & Wesson caliber.

    Velocity is greater, flat flight path, more energy being dumped into target.

    I currently have Corbon DPX (Barnes) 135 grain in both of my .40 Smith blasters. Solid copper composition.

    That's just me.
