Re: Help me understand my .40 S&W
This pretty much comes down to perceived recoil. Different combinations of bullets and powder burn rates influence what you describe in general. For instance my G17 seems much snappier shooting a 9mm, 115gr bullet than my 1911 shooting a 45acp 230 grainer (yes I know owning both is taboo) Rules of physics say otherwise but it is an issue of perception married with bullet weight-powder combinations, a fun plinking load is usually a fast powder under a heavy bullet as an example.
