What kind of rifle are you shooting? My .40 S&W handgun rounds are 165gr to 195gr and in the neighborhood of 1,000-1,200 FPS.


.405 Win :P

I have several .40 handguns and have no issues with the round or the firearms. I prefer 10mm and .357 (and for Coonan). But I see no reason to denigrate the .40. The Internut is filled with peoples' opinions and I take them with a pound of salt, if I even bother to watch.

To me it has always been a popularity contest with the consequences of losing being higher ammo prices.

If I used price as a decision factor my spending habits would look much different. Money is just a ticket to ride ;)

That's not too far from a S&W 460 running buffalo bore. I really need a lever gun in that.
