  • .40 Smith & Wesson 180 Grain Hornady XTP Bullets feature a performance-improved point that has 6 precise folds to divide the bullet into symmetrical sections and initiate controlled expansion at low velocities while not fragmenting at higher velocities. They expand reliably at a wide range of velocities for a deep, terminal penetration with every shot.

    eXtreme Terminal Performance

    Designed for hunting, self-defense and law enforcement applications, the XTP bullet demonstrates the kind of accuracy that led many competitive shooters to adopt it. Reliable performance makes the XTP the most popular handgun bullet for both target shooters and hunters. But it’s the stopping power of the XTP bullet that has truly built its world-class reputation. From the onset, XTP bullets were specifically designed to expand reliably at a wide range of handgun velocities to deliver deep penetration with every shot.

    • Velocity 960 FPS
    • 100% hand loaded with superior quality and performance

    These high-performance rounds provide excellent reliability, consistency, accuracy, penetration and stopping power for personal protection.

  • This combination pack of Practical Range Ammunition and Tactical Self-Defense Ammunition is the perfect mating of “Trigger Time” and “Business Time”.

    Both the flat point range ammunition and XTP were paired and developed to perform exactly the same, both in feel and most importantly, in point of aim/point of impact. So if the time ever comes, there will be no surprises.

    A great purchase for those sharpening skills, or who are working on their CCW.

    .40 S&W 180 grain Plated Flat Point– It does not matter what caliber or round we are loading- Choice Ammunition loads everything by hand with the tightest loading tolerances in the industry. This creates the most accurate, reliable and dependable ammunition you can buy through the 100% hand-loaded process.

    Our .40 S&W plated bullets are swaged from a custom alloyed lead for uniformity, then plated to final weight and put back in a carbide die to be re-struck to the desired final dimension.

    We strive to be price competitive and provide the best performing round available. This 180 grain plated range ammunition provides enjoyable range or practice time for  shooting enthusiasts with a desire to hit what they are aiming at! Please check out our plated ammunition available in other calibers as well.

    Our Range ammunition is designed to transition directly to our defense/hunting rounds in point of impact and performance.

  • 40 Smith & Wesson 180 Grain Hi-Tek Coated Range Ammo– The .40 S&W is a rimless pistol cartridge developed jointly by major American firearms manufacturers Smith & Wesson and Winchester. The .40 S&W was developed from the ground up as a law enforcement cartridge designed to duplicate performance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) reduced-velocity 10mm Auto cartridge which could be retrofitted into medium-frame (9mm size) semi-automatic handguns. It uses 0.40-inch (10 mm) diameter bullets ranging in weight from 105 to 200 grains.
    The Bullet:
    We use a unique heat-set “HI-TEK Supercoat” manufactured in Australia, where it has been used for more than 20 years. The Hi-Tek Supercoat Bullet Coating totally encapsulates the lead projectiles and replaces standard wax lube.
    Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets are safe to shoot indoors.  The coating gives off no toxic out-gassing or particulate matter when fired. The coating is absolutely non abrasive and contains no PTFE or MOLY. The end result is cleaner air, cleaner hands, cleaner equipment and cleaner guns!

  • 40 Smith & Wesson 150 grain FMJ– The .40 S&W is a rimless pistol cartridge developed jointly by major American firearms manufacturers Smith & Wesson and Winchester. The .40 S&W was developed from the ground up as a law enforcement cartridge designed to duplicate performance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation‘s (FBI) reduced-velocity 10mm Auto cartridge which could be retrofitted into medium-frame (9mm size) semi-automatic handguns. It uses 0.40-inch (10 mm) diameter bullets ranging in weight from 105 to 200 grains.

    The popularity of the .40 S&W accelerated with the passage of the now-expired Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 which prohibited sales of pistol or rifle magazines that could hold more than ten rounds (cartridges), regardless of caliber. Several U.S. states, and a number of local governments, also banned or regulated so-called “high capacity” magazines. As a result, many new firearm buyers limited to purchasing pistols with a maximum magazine capacity of 10 rounds chose pistols in the .40 S&W chambering instead of smaller-diameter cartridges such as the 9x19mm (9mm Luger or 9mm Parabellum).

    The .40 S&W case length and overall cartridge length are shortened, but other dimensions except case web and wall thickness remain identical to the 10mm Auto. Both cartridges headspace on the mouth of the case. Thus in a semi-auto they are not interchangeable. Based on ideal terminal ballistic performance in ordnance gelatin during lab testing in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the .40 S&W earned status as “the ideal cartridge for personal defense and law enforcement”. Ballistically the .40 S&W is almost identical to the .38-40 Winchester introduced in 1874, as they share the same bullet diameter and bullet weight, and have similar muzzle velocities. The energy of the .40 S&W exceeds standard-pressure .45 ACP loadings, generating between 350 foot-pounds and 500 foot-pounds of energy, depending on bullet weight. Both the .40 S&W and the 9mm Parabellum operate at a 35,000 pounds per square inch SAAMI maximum, compared to a 21,000 pounds per square inch maximum for .45 ACP.

    The Bullet

    The jacketed hollow point (JHP) is designed to expand rapidly when hitting its target, which increases the effectiveness of the bullet and decreases the chances of over-penetration. Jacketed hollow points come in a massive variety, separated by shape, design or simply the company that manufactures them. JHP rounds will feed better than lead nosed hollow points in most weapons that use a magazine, whether it’s a pistol or rifle. The jacket has a much smoother surface, with less variation from bullet to bullet than traditional lead.

    Our 40 S&W 150 grain JHP ammunition is second to none. With the tightest loading tolerances in the industry through our proprietary formulas and 100% hand-loading techniques- this round of ammunition is designed for superior accuracy, reliability and consistency when you shoot them over other factory produced rounds on the market. We load each round individually, with the same passion and dedication only found in individual loading rooms and benches across the country.  This loading process by Choice Ammunition, along with this Jacketed Hollow Point bullet- will provide you with a round of ammunition you can count on with “uncompromised Precision” and “Uncompromised Reliability”.
