This is 45 ACP Winchester Supreme Elite 230gr. Bonded PDX Ammo. The new Winchester Supreme Elite Bonded PDX1, which was chosen by the FBI as their primary service round, is now available in a full line of popular handgun calibers.  The Bonded PDX1 is engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats. The proprietary bonding process welds lead and jacket together to work as a unit controlling expansion and providing superior retained weight.  Upon impact the hollow point expands to 1.5 times the size of the original bullet diameter—maximizing the threat stopping power. The jacket has been notched into six segments to help promote positive, consistent and programmed expansion at a variety of impact velocities.  The ammunition has a nickel plated shellcase helping ensure positive gun function through smooth chambering and shellcase ejection. This ammo comes packed in 20rds. per box.

Ballistic Gel Testing

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 45 ACP (Auto) self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.

We fired five rounds of this Winchester Ammunition 45 ACP (Auto) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a Ruger SR45 with a 4.5-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Winchester Ammunition ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 45 ACP (Auto) ammo we have tested so far.
