This cartridge was developed as an in-house joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson within six months from the time it was first discussed in June 1989.  At the time, the FBI had been working with the 10 mm Automatic, developing a load that met its criteria for bullet diameter, weight and velocity.  The folks at Winchester and Smith & Wesson realized that the power level the FBI had settle on could easily be achieved using a mush shorter cartridge.  This would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame.
The 40 Smith & Wesson delivers serious power for such a small package and rivals the best 45 Automatic can offer.  However, such a powerful and compact package requires comparatively high pressures. High peak pressure and a short barrel equate to high noise.
