I've heard rumblings that the 40S&W is going extinct. Could that be the explanation?

Honestly, I don't really see that happening. It's never been as popular as 9mm or 45, but it's always been fairly popular for many people.

Last 9mm ammo shortage some years ago, it got somewhat popular because 9mm shortage. Lot's of people were buying 40 pistols and ammo because they were more available on the market.

Sig 10mm is where it’s at for mainstream factory ammo. 180gr slug running at 1250 is pretty stout. It’s not quite big bore magnum level but you know it’s there.

I think most LEOs have already dropped 40 S&W (like 357 Sig) for 9mm. Sig dropping 40 might just be another nail in the coffin.

TO ALL,

LOOK for pistols in .40S&W & the ammo to DISAPPEAR from the USA store shelves rather soon, as that it a caliber that is LEGAL in foreign nations where .45ACP & 9x19mm (AND some other so-called "weapons of war") are UNLAWFUL for anyone but the military to possess.
(That is WHY that the .38 SUPER is so popular in Latin America.)

yours, satx

Guess I better stock up on both then.
And get to loading the thousands of cases I have already.
