We wanted to know exactly what happens to a self-defense handgun bullet on impact, so following FBI protocols, we fired five rounds of Winchester 180 gr Ranger T-Series from 10 feet, through four layers of cloth (to simulate clothing), into synthetic ballistic gelatin. The photos below show the bullets recovered from the gelatin after being fired from a Glock 27 pistol. There’s also a high speed video that shows the bullet impacting the gelatin block.
All the data we gathered pertaining to expansion and penetration of this load can be found in the chart below, and the diagrams at the bottom of the page show how it compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) self-defense loads from our tests.
In addition to the Winchester 180 gr Ranger T-Series, we tested over 100 other self-defense loads, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for the full story.

I highly recommend purchasing this ammunition while supplies last. I have experience carrying the exact brand and loan in 40 S&W. It performs like no other. It is very reliable and effective.
Very accurate ammo
I recently found a few boxes of the Ranger T series 180 gr. hollow point. Although a bit pricey, they performed better than anything else I have shot. They had less recoil than the 180 gr. white box Winchester JHP which I use for practice, and they are way more accurate. They all hit exactly where I aimed at 10 yards. This ammo is extremely accurate and smooth shooting. They apparently performed very well in the penetration and expansion tests too. I will be using these rounds in my EDC gun.
.40s&w 180gr JHP Win T-Series
This is another quality round from Winchester.
I use my weapon for close defense work. This is a good round but it is a little pricey & I get better performance with the Ranger "Bonded". Either way you can't go wrong. Better get them while you can because they are getting harder to get. Thanks Heidi & Co. & Season's Greetings!!!!
