If you want to shoot steel targets up close for tactical training, or are concerned that your range’s stony backdrop might result in splash-back, then you definitely want this 40 S&W cartridge from Winchester’s Ranger line of ammunition. Developed for law enforcement professionals but available to the public, this round’s 135 grain bullet is made entirely of compressed metal powder. Instead of posing a risk of splash-back when it hits a hard surface, the frangible bullet simply disintegrates into harmless dust. Better yet, this round’s bullet is totally devoid of lead. That means the heat of ignition won’t aerosolize any toxic metal for you to breathe in, and the moment of impact won’t produce a harmful cloud of lead, either!
This round’s frangible bullet is seated in a high quality brass shell casing, which is drawn straight for unerring feeding in a semi-automatic and supple enough to ensure efficient, clean ignition. Its non-corrosive primer is every bit as dependable as one Winchester would put in a self-defense round, and its propellant also burns exceptionally cleanly.
