We test fired five rounds of .40 S&W Winchester 180 gr Ranger Bonded into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Glock 27 pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .40 S&W loads.

This is PDX1 ammo, just in a 50 rd. box. Excellent ammo. I use it as an EDC rd. in one of my FS M&P pistols.

Excellent SD ammo I'd put my life on it.
Review by Donnie S.
Like other reviews posted LG is a great place to do your ammo purchase business. I've ran this Winchester 180 grain bonded JHP for practice at the range an more importantly this is my EDC round I carry in my carry pistol a FNS compact 40 S&W I when I carry my FNS 9MM COMPACT it too has winchester 124 grain bonded JHP ammo in it. I have the full size FNS 40 & 9MM an both FNS compact all 4 have never had anything but Winchester or Federal bonded white box ammo. I put my life on both the Winchester & Federal white box ammo. Its that good.

Review by DGSMITH1
I've been running this ammo in my FNS 40 an before the FN A Springfield Armory XDM 40. Never any issues. This is hot ammo loaded to government specs. You can't go wrong with this ammo. My EDC is a FNS 9MM Compact. It carry this ammo in 9mm. I highly recommend this ammo for both training and self defense. LuckyGunner get me my ammo FAST an without issues.

This is the same ammo used by all federal agencies. It the same as the old Black talon and new Windchester PDX-1 rounds -- i buy it after i have used box or 2 at the range. Excellent ammo for all occasions.

This is the same as the PDX-1 round. Also is carried by all federal agencies. I buy this ammo as i need it --LOL.
Have my supply and use as needed. Lucky Gunner is great company to deal with and prices are great. Depends where you live but i get my stuff in 2 days. Other on line companies might be good but Lucky Gunner is best I have dealt with over the years. Heidi is great lady to deal with if any questions on things.

I have bought many differnent brands of ammo from Lucky Gunner over the last few years and other plas but the ammo from them is by far cheaper to say in price even with shipping than others.
The Winchester bonded 40Cal S&W ammo is one of the best I have used and no failers to fire or eject in either a S&W or a Glock. This mmo is a very good defensive round and gel tests prove it. Love dealing with LG as they are friendly , ordering and shipping is a breeze. In most cases i get my orders in 2 or 3 days without any problems
