…a friend here after years and years of total devotion to the 9mm just bought a pair of .40s&ws after an altercation of sorts with some 400lb Samoans...hmmm. He claims that the 200gn slug should be adequate at around 1000fps…
Well, there's a couple of obvious little problems here… don't know many 200-grain loadings in the .40 S&W chambering, #1, and, #2, 1000 fps with the 180-grain standard is pushing things a tad on the hot side of a cartridge already on the maximum pressure cusp. I think 200-grains at 1,000 fps is a might unrealistic.
