    200gr .40sw???

    Hey folks, I was bored and just looking around at ammo on Midway USA. I noticed they had some 200 gr .40 made by Nosler and Doubletap. I never heard of 200 gr for the .40. Anyone ever used any before? I'm just curious.

    Personally, I wouldn't go over 180 gr in a 40 S&W. My personal preference is 165 gr. If you want 200 gr, go to a 10mm auto, or 45 ACP.

    Ok thanks. I just had never seen or heard of 200 gr before. I have 180gr golddots right now loaded in my magazines right now.

    Those 200 gr bullets were designed for the 10mm so the expansion window for them will be at 10mm velocities. I wouldn't trust them to expand at .40 velocities.

    I use 165 Gold Dots or Golden Sabers in my G-23 and they work just fine and they are what my department supplied for our .40 S&W.

    Agalindo has the right answer here IMHO.

    Of all the weights I've tried, 150 to 165 gr are the most accurate in my gun.
