History of Federal 40 S&W Ammo

The 40 S&W ammo Federal produces is some of the most reliable, powerful, and accurate ammo on the market. Established in 1922, Federal Ammunition has become one of the top producers of ammo around the world. And their Federal 40 S&W ammo is some of the most affordable and dependable ammunition available.

When the FBI developed the 40 S&W in 1990, the 40 S&W ammo Federal provided quickly became commonplace in law enforcement around the nation. Federal 40 cal ammo for self defense is highly respected across the globe as numerous agencies adopted it for their carry guns.

Federal 40 ammo comes in several varieties:

  • American Eagle FMJ
  • Syntech Action Pistol
  • Personal Defense Hydra-Shok
  • Personal Defense HST
  • Indoor Range Lead Free

There’s no denying that you’ve got several options for Federal 40 cal ammo for practice. Federal 40 S&W American Eagle is the affordable and reliable full metal jacket (FMJ) ammo you need to hone your marksmanship skills. For indoor ranges, there’s Lead Free Federal 40 S&W that will meet your local range’s requirements.

For the competitive shooter, there’s Syntech Action Pistol Federal 40 cal ammo. As the official ammo of the USPSA, Federal 40 S&W Syntech will meet all the FPS and power level requirements as well as hosting a total synthetic jacket that prevents metal on metal impacts. Syntech Federal 40 ammo also comes in a host of different colors to meet all your chromatic needs.

However, one of the things Federal 40 cal ammo is most well-known for is self defense. When your life is on the line, turn to the brand that law enforcement trusts with their lives, Federal 40 S&W Hyrda-Shok and HST personal defense rounds.

Since its release in 1989, Federal Premium Hydra-Shok jacketed hollow points have been the benchmark by which all other JHP ammo is measured. And Federal 40 S&W Hydra-Shok ammo holds true to this legacy with consistent, reliable expansion that is preferred by numerous self-defense instructors.

The other extremely effective personal defense round in the Federal 40 S&W arsenal is their HST jacketed hollow point line. Developed for extremely reliable penetration, expansion, and near 100% weight retention through barriers, Federal 40 S&W HST ammo is the top choice of multiple law enforcement agencies for their duty personnel. Manufactured with strict requirements, HST Federal 40 ammo provides superior performance in the FBI testing protocol without over penetration.

When your life is on the line, you should always reach for the ammo that the professionals trust theirs to. And that ammo is Federal 40 S&W Hydra-Shok and HST. When seconds count and you need a handgun round that is reliable, consistent, accurate, and powerful, then Federal 40 cal ammo will always have your back when you need it most.

    The pricing and delivery was outstanding. High quality ammo at the best price. Have told my friends and they are going to get their ammo from Ammo.com

  • Nick said:

    3000 rounds with my friends and no problems.

  • Alan said:

    I've ordered this ammo twice now. 1000 rounds each time. First 1000 went through my glock 23 without any failures of any kind. I'm onto the second 1000 now and anticipate the same flawless performance. Service is excellent. Shipping was very fast. Value is great.

  • Mac said:

    I have shot this brand of ammo before, it has always performed well in my semi-auto without jaming, and is very accurate in my particular weapon.

  • Lia_npc said:

    Appreciate fast turn of customer order being shipped to me, thanks much in this trying time of our great country

  • Steve said:

    Works good. No jams or misfires

  • Paperbanger said:

    Looking for some .40 cal you can feed your pistol with total confidence? Fill your magazines with the HST JHP from Federal! My Sig and I spent an afternoon punching holes with these, along with three other brands. We know there are some brands okay for range practice, because a misfeed or misfire doesn't matter much. But it was clear from the outset that if you carry, these are the guys you want to take with you. Never a misfeed or misfire, and accurate to a gnat's eyelash. I figure if it's my life and perhaps the lives of my loved ones on the line, I'll have enough to worry about without fighting the bad guys and my ammo problems at the same time.

  • Bob said:

    Quality seem to be top notch. I had no problems with the ammo at all. Fired cleanly. A real bargain.

  • maur800 said:

    no fail to feed no misfires, no nothing very enjoyable to shoot when there no HICCUPS

  • Rich said:

    Ran a box of this ammo through a Springfield XDM .40 at the range today with no problems. Nice price for when you want to send something down range other than a .22LR. I'll be buying more. Thanks Ammo.com!!

  • Josephine said:

    Not at the Federal level. God knows what kind of restrictions exist in some of the more helsilh SSR's, but here in Tennessee, your ammo purchases are restricted only by your bank acount and the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of your ride.

  • randy said:

    like this for ammo

  • BMan said:

    Went through 150 rounds of this to try it out. No misfires or jams, accurate, and no ricochets that I could tell

  • scot said:

    after about 250 rounds no problems at all, will be getting some more soon.

  • Doctor said:

    See summary. Good quality overall.

  • COACHC said:

    Great ammo. No problems what so ever after firing 200 rounds. Good price and super quick ship.
