Winchester Ammunition 230 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

We all know how important it is to get lots of practice training with the exact firearm and ammo you intend to use for personal defense. With that in mind, Winchester has designed an ammunition pair; one product for training, the other for self defense. The training round resembles the self defense as closely as possible, giving you the greatest opportunity for success if faced with a life threatening self defense situation.



This product is the "defend" round. It contains a 230 grain jacketed hollow point bullet, the projectile of choice when it comes to personal defense. Reliable firing and massive expansion will stop your attacker dead in their tracks. Just make sure you also purchase the "train" round, which is sold separately, to take full advantage of this incredible product. These rounds are Boxer primed, nickel-plated brass, non-corrosive, and reloadable.

Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.452-inches, retaining 100% of the projectile's original weight.
