500 Rounds Winchester Ranger Bonded Q4392 - 9mm 147 grain Bonded Jacketed Hollow Point in 50 round boxes. FBI Contract RA9B with the PDX1 bullet.
This ammunition is normally only available to law
enforcement, however we can offer this to
all of our
customers. This is Winchester Ranger Q4392, which is the FBI's special
catalog number for Winchester Ranger RA9B. Winchester pencils in a "Z"
prefix on the SKU number on the case only of its government contract
products released for sale to the consumer market to indicate that the federal excise tax has been paid.
AR15.com These cases are factory-sealed. This is first-quality ammunition from a contract overrun manufactured as a service load for the FBI (Olin-Winchester
Contract Number J-FBI-13-127).
date codes indicate a manufacture date of March 2016.
This is the exact same ammunition sold to other law enforcement
agencies as RA9B. Apparently RA9B
does NOT use the PDX1 bullet but the Q4364 ammunition does.
Prior to the Speer Gold Dot 2, this was the 9mm cartridge issued by the FBI.
This is not the same cartridge sold as ZRA9B. Those were RA9B law
enforcement cartridges that were sold to the public as factory seconds
because of cosmetic imperfections. While the
Reclassified government sales material stuff that is out of spec does
also get marked with a Z on the case, it is also marked on the 50 packs
as well or put into a different box, or relabeled to change the SKU #
from its original form. Q4364 is first quality ammunition in the original factory boxes and without markings.
Some sellers are currently offering lots of RA9B with brass
cases rather than the normal nickel cases. These are ZRA9B. Some of
those boxes with brass cases are marked RA9B and others RA9BA. The
ammunition we are offering to you has nickel cases. It is
the exact same ammunition sold to law enforcement
agencies as RA9B.
$0.57/cartridge for one of the best and the most difficult to find
9mm self defense rounds. The ammunition in packaged in ten 50 round
boxes as pictured. This ammunition may have been manufactured in East
Alton, IL or Winchester's new plant in Oxford, MS. The year of
manufacture is 2016.

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 bonding process changes the
bullet from shiny to dull. 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.
- SUPERIOR PENETRATION
- IDEAL FOR AUTO GLASS OR OTHER ABRASIVE BARRIERS

Winchester ammo seminar earlier this year, I expressly asked the
assembled execs if they had ever heard of a case where an armed
citizen's choice of their LEO/Ranger ammo had been used against them in
court, and they replied that they had not."

"Bullet designs like the Silver Tip, Hydra-Shok,
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."
