180gr is fine in 40sw 200gr on the other hand is pretty dangerous surprised he doesnt mention that on his site.

I have shot many 1,000's of rounds of 180gr FMJ and JHP at all sort of velocities from 950fps to 1150fps all sorts of handloads and reloads with all sorts of brass and even wolff steel casings to no ill effects.

first batch of Federal 40sw brass was known to have thin webbing and when paired with poor chamber support would pop under the pressure.
avoid 40sw gun with poor chamber support.

some people use 40sw brass 200gr bullets and even 220gr bullets but they load them to 10mm lengths in performance 1911's that have full chamber support and ramped barrel with barrel free bore extended for loading long to no ill effects.
Divided and conquered, Gripped by fear
Wishful thinking that it can't happen here
It's well underways but nobody knows
A repeat of history, That's how it goes
