$0.74/cartridge for one of the best and the most difficult to find 45 ACP self defense
rounds. The ammunition in packaged in ten 50 round boxes as pictured, and supplied in
factory-sealed cases. This ammunition was manufactured in Winchester's new
plant in Oxford, MS.
This product is only available to law enforcement divisions through the
nationwide network of Winchester Ammunition Law Enforcement Distributors, and ships
directly to the agency. For that reason, it is nearly impossible for us to sell you
factory new ammunition. Much of the Ranger ammunition we sell was initially purchased
for or by a law enforcement agency, and then made available to the public for various
Ranger® Bonded handgun ammunition was specifically created to deliver maximum
penetration through the toughest of barriers. This effectiveness is made possible
thanks to the Winchester proprietary core/jacket bonding process—and is enhanced
with a special hollow point cavity that acts in unison to control expansion, leading to
maximum weight retention and deep penetration through hard and abrasive barriers
including auto glass.
The proprietary bonding process welds the
lead and jacket together to work as one unit, controlling expansion and providing
superior retained weight upon impact.
The bonding process changes
the bullet from shiny to dull.
By bonding the lead to the jacket,
it ensures maximum stopping power.
The Ranger® Bonded line is
engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test
protocol, which simulates real-world threats.
Ranger® Bonded ammunition is capable of penetrating a wide range of barriers from
clothing to plywood and still effectively stops a threat,”
said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition’s vice president of sales
Selected by federal law enforcement agencies for
their .40 and 9mm caliber service rounds, the Ranger Bonded gives you the penetration
to handle the most serious of threats.

"Bullet designs like the Silver Tip, Hydra-Shok, and Black Talon were state
of the art 15 or 20 years ago. These older bullets tend to plug up and act like FMJ
projectiles when shot through heavy clothing; they also often have significant
degradation in terminal performance after first passing through intermediate barriers.
Modern ammunition which has been designed for robust expansion against clothing and
intermediate barriers is significantly superior to the older designs. The bullets in
the Federal Classic and Hydrashok line are outperformed by other ATK products such as
the Federal Tactical and HST, as well as the Speer Gold Dot; likewise Winchester Ranger
Talons are far superior to the old Black Talons or civilian SXT's."
