What is 40 super ammo

40 Super ammo is a high-pressure loading of the .40 S&W cartridge, typically operating at pressures over 37,500 psi. It was developed in the early 1990s by Evan Marshall and Bob Serva of Marshall & Sanow, LLC, to create a more powerful loading of the .40 S&W cartridge. The .40 Super has since become famous for those looking for more power out of their .40 S&W pistols.

The .40 Super can deliver significantly more energy than the .40 S&W, with some loads achieving velocities over 1,400 feet per second. It increases penetration and expansion potential, making the .40 Super a very effective self-defense round.

Despite its increased power, the .40 Super is used in pistols designed for the .40 S&W cartridge because the two cartridges’ case dimensions are identical. As such, many shooters choose to use the .40 Super as their primary self-defense round, as it offers increased performance without sacrificing compatibility with their existing firearms.

The 40 Super is a high-pressure cartridge to use in pistols explicitly designed for it. The Glock 23 cannot fire 40 Super ammunition without potentially causing severe damage to the gun and injuring the shooter.

40 super ammo vs 40 s&w

40 Super ammunition is a high-pressure loading of the .40 S&W cartridge developed in the late 1980s for use in the Bren Ten pistol. The cartridge is also known as the 10mm Auto Super or the 40 Super.

The 40 Super has a slightly longer case than the 10mm Auto and is incompatible with that cartridge. The 40 Super uses a small pistol primer, while the 10mm Auto uses a large pistol primer. The 40 Super case is also not interchangeable with the .40 S&W case.

The 40 Super is a rimless, straight-walled cartridge. It has a maximum pressure of 35,000 psi and a SAAMI pressure limit of 33,000 psi. The cartridge can have velocities above 1,400 feet per second from a 5″ barrel.

The 40 Super is used with bullets weighing between 155 and 200 grains. The most popular bullet weights are 165, 180, and 200 grains. The 180-grain bullet is the most popular choice for self-defense ammunition.

The 40 Super has more muzzle energy than the 10mm Auto and is therefore considered more robust. However, the 10mm Auto has more recoil than the 40 Super and is less popular among shooters.
