Reduced recoil means faster target aquisition
Be sure to install a lighter weight recoil spring in your firearm or you will not go to slide lock and have plenty of stove pipes. I shoot a Sig 229 40/357 that uses the factory Blue recoil spring, swapped that out with the White recoil spring that is meant for the 9mm and the gun cycles flawlessly with this ammo. I figure I can shave off a tenth of a second getting my sights back on target and in an 80 round match that would be an 8 second savings. Wow, it adds up quickly. I only gave 4 stars because the price is a little high. If they use less powder the should pass on the savings to the customer. Just a cheap man’s opinion. Be safe and have fun.
Atlanta Arms .40 S&W 180 Grain Minor---Outstanding
Have fired over 8,500 rounds in last 4-5 years through M&P Pro 5 inch—includes practice, IDPA, USPSA and Steel Challenge. Just received my 10th case last week. Ammo runs flawlessly through 5 inch with factory 16 pd recoil spring. Had a few light primer strikes with last case. Striker spring may be getting weak. Ordered replacement striker assembly from Brownells.
Atlanta Arms .40 S&W 180 Grain Minor
The Atlanta Arms .40 S&W 180 grain Minor ammo that I received recently shoots very well, as does all of Atlanta Arms ammo, and the recoil is like a 9mm. I will be ordering this ammo again!
Shoots perfect in my “experienced” pistols with less recoil, but it jams often in pistols not fully broken in.
