Winchester Introduces LE-Only Ranger Bonded .38 +P Round
October 09, 2010
Winchester Ammunition has introduced the new Ranger Bonded .38 Special +P round for all law enforcement officers carrying .38 Special snubnosed revolvers.
The new round is a 130-grain bonded hollow point and uses the same technology the FBI uses as its primary service round. The Ranger Bonded line is engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, according to a Winchester press release.
"The new Ranger Bonded ammunition is capable of penetrating a wide range of barriers from clothing to plywood and still effectively stops a threat," according to Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition's vice president of sales and marketing.
The bonding process welds the lead and jacket together as one, which controls expansion and provides superior retained weight upon impact. This ensures "maximum stopping power," according to the company.
This same bonding process is used on the 9mm and .40 S&W ammunition carried by the FBI as their duty ammunition.
This product is only available to law enforcement divisions through the company's nationwide network of Winchester Ammunition Law Enforcement Distributors.
