The .40 S&W (1022mm Smith & Wesson) is a rimless pistol cartridge developed jointly by major American firearms manufacturers Smith & Wesson and Winchester. The .40 S&W was developed from the ground up as a law enforcement cartridge designed to duplicate performance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s reduced-velocity 10mm Auto cartridge which could be retrofitted into medium-frame (9mm size) automatic handguns. It uses .40 inch (10.16mm) diameter bullets ranging in weight from 105 to 200 grains (6.8039 g to 13 g).

Red Vipers are a cast lead projectile using certified factory alloy containing 92% lead, 6% animony and 2% tin.

After this projectile is swaged to correct diameter and profile, it then goes through a 3 step process of encapsulating the projectile with a non-toxic polymer based HI-TEK supercoat.  This process eliminates smoke and leading associated with the traditional lead cast bullets.

This cost effective 40 S&W round is loaded with a brass casing, Winchester primer and powder along with a 180 gr Red Viper projectile.  This round is loaded to SAAMI specs along with integrity and attention to detail to ensure reliability and outstanding performance.

    The only reason it wasn’t a 5 star rating is the wait time. I know it was not all their fault, but they truly deserve it for contacting me via telephone to explain the status of my order. I had emailed them a question and provided my cell phone number.
    Highly recommended company!

    The wait time was longer than expected, but I’m very satisfied with my order. Even after the shipping SNAFU ( All on me. I really should read the invoice,) Thanks Monte and all your staff at GTG.
