Looking for 30″ of penetration? The new Outdoorsman load from Buffalo Bore for the .40 S&W cartridge will give you exactly that.
The load uses a 200 grain, hard-cast, flat-nose bullet at 1000 fps to achieve deep penetration for punching through skulls and other large bones of animals that pose a threat while spending time outdoors. According the the company, the load gives “roughly 30 inches of straight-line penetration in flesh and bone.”
Buffalo Bore states they are able to get the 1000 fps velocity while staying within SAAMI pressure limits by using a hard cast bullet instead of regular lead or jacketed bullets. With two different Glock 23 pistols, Buffalo Bore obtained 962 fps and 969 fps velocities.
