Winchester bonded .40S&W info needed
 
Hello everyone,

First post and hope you guys can help me. I am looking at 3 different types of Winchester bonded 180 grn hollow points for my G35 and cannot find out the differences in these rounds.

q4355
q4369
RA40B

from all of my research, i cant get a straight answer on this stuff. too much conflicting info to really be able to discern fact from BS.

each round has a different price yet all 3 are 180grn bonded hollow points from winchester.

Anyone who knows the differences in projectile type, loading, etc...and would pass on the info so I can make an informed decision would be much appreciated, as I have run out of information to look at.

It sounds like q4369 was slightly out of spec, enough to be excluded from sale to LE agencies, but still good enough for self defense.

RA40B is the same exact load as Q4369 as far as I know, only difference being that one passed quality control for sale to law enforcement and one didn't.

And as far as I know, PDX1 is simply re-branded and repackaged RA40B, and it probably has a little looser quality control as well.

This source says RA40B is rated 1070ft/s, probably at the muzzle. PDX1 180gr is listed on the box as 1025ft/s from the muzzle, of what length barrel it doesn't say but I think it's safe to say that it's loaded softer than RA40B.

appreciate the help voyager, im going with the q4355. doc roberts lists it on his gtg self defense rounds, so it can't be bad...
