History of the 40 S&W Round:

The 40 S&W cartridge was introduced in 1990 as a collaboration between Smith and Wesson and Winchester, designed to bridge the gap between the 9mm Luger and the 45 ACP cartridges. It was created to offer law enforcement agencies a cartridge with the stopping power of the 45 ACP, but with reduced recoil and higher magazine capacity similar to the 9mm. Since its introduction, the 40 S&W has become popular among law enforcement and civilian shooters alike for its balance of power and controllability.
