Winchester® Ammunition’s new Ranger® Bonded .38 Special +P round offers a great, new option for all law enforcement officers carrying .38 Special snub nose revolvers.

The new round is a 130 gr. bonded hollow point and uses the same technology the Federal Bureau of Investigation uses as its primary service round. The Ranger® Bonded line is engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats.

“The new Ranger® Bonded ammunition is capable of penetrating a wide range of barriers from clothing to plywood and still effectively stops a threat,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition’s vice president of sales and marketing.

The proprietary bonding process welds the lead and jacket together to work as one unit, controlling expansion and providing superior retained weight upon impact. By bonding the lead to the jacket, it ensures maximum stopping power.

In addition, this same bonding process is used on the 9mm and 40 S&W ammunition selected by the FBI for use as their duty ammunition.

The bullet offers a six segment jacket design for a consistent and programmed expansion at a variety of impact velocities, including the lower velocities associated with snub nose revolvers, to maximize expanded diameter.

This product is only available to law enforcement divisions through our nationwide network of Winchester Ammunition Law Enforcement Distributors.
