Default .40 Super Round

.40 Super - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So what's the deal with this rd.I really like it but have never shot a 40 Super. I know somebody has some more info than me...... Thanks in advance, I'm thinking bout buying a G21 & there are conversions to go with a barrel that will fit and you can use a 45 to bitch slap someone. Jk does anyone got the lowdown on this rd.......Concealed 27

Sounds like a 10mm.

Sounds like a .40 S&W but it wears a red cape. Lol

For me that's too odd a round. I personally would stick with the common calibers.
Something you're more likely to find if you have to start scrounging for ammo.
9mm, .40 S&W, .45, .357 etc. and .223/5.56, 7.62 etc. for rifle rounds.

It's just not likely your going to stumble across .40 Super in a SHTF situation.
But not everyone thinks like me (thank goodness) so if it intrigues you, go for it.

Wild cats are always trying new rounds. 40 was a down sized 10mm that the FBI thought was to powerful for affirmative action people.

I like how they compare the hottest 40 super load to mild loads from the other cartridges as well as using different length barrels.

It is a potent round and should be allowed to stand on it's own merits instead of cooked stats.

Definitely a Wildcat round. A .45win magnum necked down to .40 cal. Incredible stats on the round. Just a wild guess but I bet the pressure would destroy a Glock. 1800fps & 971 ft-lb is some serious juice. You will likely need to make your own brass and the little detail that the COL is too long for any Glock mags.

357 sig psi is about as high as I would go with a glock.
