The 40 S&W was developed for the FBI by Smith & Wesson. S&W received reduced power 10mm handloads from FBI agent John Hall, and they soon realized that the casing could be shorter. The change to reduce the size of the 10mm casing to fit reduced recoil/pressure; also fit into smaller framed handgun. The other advantage of the 40 S&W is that it uses a small pistol primer vs the 10mm using a large pistol primer. This reduces price to load/reload the ammunition and along with the reduced powder; has the 40 S&W as one of the kings of terminal performance per cost. The basic design of the 40 S&W is a reduced power 10mm, sized to fit in medium frame pistols (9mm frames).
