Review: Winchester Ranger T-Series 45 ACP Self Defense Ammo
Potent and Rock Solid 45 ACP Law Enforcement Ammunition
Dan S. Defense,
The origin of the T-series began with the famous or infamous Talon line that started as general self defense ammo and later pulled off the market after being demonized by the media. In reality, the Black Talon wasn't a very effective bullet because it didn't expand as expected, especially after encountering a few layers of denim..... Winchester invested significant resources in analyzing the problems of the Black Talon and later developed the SXT line which turned out to be far superior to the Black Talon. The T-Series continues the legacy as advanced self defense ammo coveted by law enforcement and serious individuals.
The Winchester Ranger T-Series utilizes a reverse taper jacket design that manages to produce consistent and reliable bullet expansion through several test barriers. Whether the barrier be denim or a car's windshield or dry wall or even steel, the advanced Winchester Ranger ammo penetrates and expands in a consistent and impressive manner. In addition to these critical properties, the Winchester Ranger line offer excellent accuracy with smooth feeding in any good handgun. Reliability is legendary ....You need to be sure you can maintain high level of accuracy with the bullet of your choice and keep in mind that both types of bullet are exceptionally potent. For example, the T-Series will penetrate heavy clothing as far as 12.3" and expand 0.75" while retaining 100% of its initial weight with perfect expansion. The +P bullet will penetrate 15.7" and expand 0.78" against the same type of barrier. You can view the entire set of tests as well as see the recovered bullet under this excellent Winchester ammo test tool.
