A few things:
1. Ammunition does not significantly impact the defensive index. Buy Weapons and max out fortifications if you simply want to raise the index. Ammunition is only needed if you plan on actually using the weapons to defend your country.
2. The index value does not change immediately, but rather, it will take several game-months to rise to the appropriate value when you buy more weapons.
3. The reverse is also true, if you've recently sold, transferred, destroyed, or lost weapons. The index may not have bottomed out. This would mean that recent weapons purchases are simply preventing the index from falling further.
4. It is possible that you are not buying defensive weapons in large enough quantities to significantly impact your index. I have a 400 DFI (defensive force index) with ~125,000 weapons of different varieties. For a 40 DFI, I imagine using a proportional selection of weapons would require 12,500 weapons.

Has this been helpful, or did I lose you somewhere? Let me know if you need me to elaborate or if I haven't answered your question.
