Winchester Ammunition 180 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

500 Rounds - 40 S&W Winchester Ranger Talon 180 Grain HP Ammo

Designed specifically with law enforcement personnel in mind, Winchester Ranger Talon ammunition delivers reliable threat-stopping performance for real world self-defense situations. With remarkable accuracy, expansion, penetration, and weight retention, these rounds deliver some of the best terminal performance available to civilian shooters and law enforcement personnel.

The 180 grain hollow point projectile features a unique reverse taper jacket which expands into six razor-sharp petals, or "talons" upon target impact. The design causes the bullet to spin as it moves through the target, carving a radical wound cavity and massive tissue damage.

With nearly 100 percent weight retention, these hard-hitting projectiles transfer an enormous amount of energy. Treated with reliable lacquer waterproofing to ensure consistent performance in nearly every situation, this is ammunition you can trust.

This package includes 10 boxes of 50 rounds each. That's a full 550 cartridges of 40 S&W Winchester Ranger Talon, an ideal purchase for the gunner who likes to stock up.

This new production ammunition features clean burning, low-flash powders and Winchester's non-corrosive, boxer primers. Loaded in nickel-plated brass shell cases, these rounds offer smooth function and high visibility, even in low light conditions.

Leaving the muzzle at 990 feet per second with 387 foot pounds of energy, this ammo is great for law enforcement and civilian personal protection applications.
