Hey I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on ammo, for a Smith and Wesson M&P 40. I was looking at cci 180 grain full metal jacket for target practice.

Anything except extreeeeem shox! For tarets, use whatever you want, not like you will hurt it, so long as you aren't shooting bungled reloads.

No such thing as a .40 +P, GA does mark some of theirs +P but it just means it is their hotter loaded .40, instead of the slightly lighter loaded ammo they also make.

The S&W M&P has a slightly slower rifling twist rate than most .40 pistols on the market. This increases barrel life and reduces recoil, but it makes it a little less accurate with certain grain weights and loads. My suggestion is to get a box of 155gr, 165gr, and 180gr Speer Gold Dots and see how your shot groupings are at 15yrds. All will perform well against a person, but you should pick the one that shoots the best out of the pistol. If they all shoot equally as well, go with the 180gr which is a little easier to control and puts less wear and tear on the pistol.
