Winchester Ammunition 165 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

40 S&W Winchester Ranger Talon 165 Grain HP Ammo



Winchester has been providing shooters with high-quality ammunition since 1866. One of the most-recognized and respected names in the world, Winchester has helped shape the history of a nation. Their Ranger T-Series ammo is the pinnacle of high performance self-defense ammunition.



Designed to deliver a winning combination of threat-stopping expansion and penetration, each round is loaded with a 165 Grain reverse taper hollow point projectile. Upon target impact, these projectiles expand into razor sharp petals that spin as they cut. The result is massive energy transfer and a devastating wound channel.



This package contains 50 rounds of new production .40 S&W Winchester Ranger Talon ammunition. These loads are boxer primed and feature reloadable nickel-plated brass casings for smooth function and high visibility. Each round delivers a muzzle velocity of 1140 feet per second and 476 foot pounds of threat-stopping energy.

We tested this Winchester Ammunition 40 Smith & Wesson ammo by firing five rounds with a S&W M&P40C with a 3.5-inch barrel into calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin. Of those five rounds, we discovered the ammo penetrated an average of 15.84-inches into the gelatin. Our test rounds ended the test with an average expanded diameter of 0.728-inches, retaining 100% of the projectile's original weight.
