    Which of these two designs do you prefer/suggest for carry?

    Winchester Ranger SXT or Winchester Ranger T-Series(the newest stuff)

    SXT-been around a while
    T-Series-they re-engineered the bullet to expand differently(see pics)

    2 pics on left are the new stuff (T-Series)
    3rd pic is the back of the SXT
    4th pic shows the difference between the two (in 40 S&W) and how to identify them by the hollow point cavities. (There are boxes that say T-Series and are identical to the new stuff, but still use the SXT bullet) Bullet on right is the new stuff...notice how the cavity funnels down into a smaller pit.

    Anyway, I remember you saying in an older Proarms Podcast that you liked the Winchester Ranger stuff, but I can't remember if you specified which of these two bullet designs you prefered. Or maybe your opinion has even changed?

    Is the new T-series too new to tell yet? Any shootings with it? Can we trust it?

    Tell me everything about this stuff you know including your opinions please.

    I value your opinion very much and I appreciate your time sir.


    Thanks,
    Colby

    While the SXT is certainly good, street-proven ammo, the petals designed to stay out instead of folding back in the Ranger-T series are enough to make me prefer Ranger-T.

    best,
