Getting to know 40 cal ammo

.40 caliber ammo features rimless, straight cartridges, which were originally developed at the behest of the FBI, which aimed to replace agents’ standard-issue revolvers with semiautomatic pistols in order to increase ammo capacity and reduce reloading times in the field.

The FBI specifically requested that Smith and Wesson produce a new handgun based on the existing Model 4506 .45 that could function with 10mm ammunition. By reducing powder in existing 10mm ammunition, thus providing more airspace in the case, S&W realized it could produce ballistics to match the FBI’s specifications. S&W then teamed with Winchester to produce the new cartridge, the .40 S&W.

40 cal ammo debuted in January 1990, but it was actually Glock that had the first commercially available pistols chambered to fit the new cartridges.

40 cal ammo specifications

The biggest difference between the 40 cal ammo cartridge and its parent case, the 10mm Auto, is the 40 cal ammo’s use of a small pistol primer and shortened length. The neck and shoulder diameter of .40 cal ammo cartridges is .423 inches. The base and rim come in at .424 inches with a thickness of .055 inches. The case is .850 inches of the overall length, 1.135 inches. The rifling twist is 1 in 16 inches.
