Semi-auto pistol ammo. Many of the govt agencies use H and K, or Berretta pistols. 40 million rounds per year sounds enormous.??

Standard semiautomatic handgun caliber used by many police forces. More powerful than a 9mm and less powerful than a .45 ACP. Was designed in the late 1980s at the request of the FBI to remedy the perceived lack of stopping power of a 9mm and excessive recoil of a 10mm which the FBI used for a short period of time.

.40 S&W, the preferred round of law enforcement agencies all over the country.

.40 Short and Weak.

The favorite round of the LEO "spray and pray" crowd.

Glock food.

The round that is eventually dislodged from the body part of the LEO or LEO-proximate after the negligent discharge of the Glock.

It would be .40 inches, or .40 caliber. There is an actual .40 caliber round used in semi-auto firearms, a very popular round actually.
