Speeds, Feeds and Ballistics 40S&W — I Shot My Chronograph

Another episode of Speeds, Feeds and Ballistics this time with 40S&W. Much like the first video of testing 10MM through a pistol and carbine we put 40S&W through the same test. But this time I have a little bit of a surprise for everyone and no it is not the fact that I shot my chronograph.

Will Caliber Wars ever come to an end? So far I have tested 10MM and now 40S&W next up 9MM.

Is it really true that with the advancement in bullet technology caliber doesn’t matter anymore?

So what do you think is the ideal barrel length for 40S&W?

Leave your comments below.

Stay tuned to dayattherange.com for the 9mm comparison
