    Please do checkout our 38-40's for your autoloaders. These bullets are normally the answer for those finicky autoloaders that do not like the flat point designs. They are sized to 0.401" just like the 180 grain flat points and the 155 semi-wadcutters.

    .38-40 bullets can work great in a .40 S&W or 10mm autoloader. Just ingnore the crimping groove.

    The reverse is not true. Since .40 S&W bullets lack a crimping groove, they are not a good choice for loads to be shot in revolvers (or that rare .38-40 lever action).

    Interesting, so 38-40 is actually a 40 size not a 357 size like all the other 38s...Who knew?

    The .40 180 gr. RNFP is a good design (we offer it) but our 165gr.TC has been the biggest seller as its 100% feed reliable and is the most accurate .40 caliber cast bullet available and duplicates the most popular weight bullet used for self defense. Check it out at www.pennbullets.com/40/40-caliber.html
