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
- PERMANENT CORE/JACKET BOND WITH SPECIAL HOLLOW POINT CAVITY
- OUTSTANDING ACCURACY
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."

"Whatever you choose, make sure you fire at least 500 and preferably
1000 failure free shots through your pistol prior to carrying it. If
your pistol cannot fire at least 1000 consecutive shots without a
malfunction, something is wrong and it is not suitable for

"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."
