If you are a fan of the .40 SW but want a round that is a little bit quicker or offers slightly less recoil, the answer may not be a 9mm— what you are looking for may be the .40 SW 165 grain FMJ by PMC.
PMC was first launched in 1968 to produce ammunition for the South Korean military. After decades of using the latest in technology to meet demanding NATO standards, they are now offering ammunition for recreational shooters that is produced to those same high standards. Each round is made using high-quality components produced in-house that meet either SAAMI or U.S. Military Specification standards. It is hard to find a more modern, quality ammunition for plinking or target shooting. This ammunition is perfect for improving skills and saving money.
Each round consists of a 165 grain Full Metal Jacket bullet, high-quality first run brass, and a non-corrosive boxer primer. The resulting muzzle velocity (985 feet per second) and muzzle energy (385 foot pounds) is slightly faster and lighter than the standard 180gr round, making it a perfect choice for self-defense, target shooting, or plinking for shooters who have difficulty handling the heavier round. The combination of bulk packaging and reloadable brass helps you save money, too.
