Winchester Ranger 9mm (Q4364) 147 gr Bonded JHP

Winchester Ranger 9mm (Q4364) 147 gr Bonded JHP, friend let me have four 50 rd boxes of this, nickle cased, looks nice, seen footage on U Tube about a similar type round but the bullet profile on my new stash doesnt match the ones pictured in the video.

Anybody use this stuff. My 200 rds going into the ammo safe for Zombies or a rainy day.

On U tube after closer examination my ammunition from gold LE Only Ranger type boxes looks more like PDX-1 ammo, could that be the case, just packaged in 50 rd LEO boxes as compared to the PDX-1 20 rd boxes?

Ranger Bonded 9mm was the last to switch over to the PDX1 bullet. The last production run was for the switch over. It has taken them four years to switch all of the calibers over.

I really like the PDX1 line. What would make me like it even more would be seeing it offered in 50 round boxes instead of the 20 round (fill your magazine once and you're done) boxes.

Do you think that there is any chance that Winchester is going to offer them packaged in 50ct boxes any time soon?

PDX1 in 50 round boxes is called Ranger Bonded. I do not see why they would ever put Winchester PDX in a 50 round box since most shooters in their life time may never shoot a whole 20 round box of hp ammo.

Why do ammo makers bother to put a hollow point in 147gr bullets that are driven at less than 1000 FPS? A SWC shape would be better.

It's been many years since the old "a bullet must be driven at 1000 f.p.s. to have any chance to expand". Chuck Taylor used to quote this quite often. With modern bullet design it is simply no longer true. The 147gr. bullets work fine under 1000 f.p.s..

Because a SWC would not be better.

I remember back in the early 90's................

when you couldn't give away 147 grain subsonic rounds away. Everyone wanted the fast 115's or the in-between 124 grain Hydra-shoks.
