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 147 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 Smith & Wesson M&P9c 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 9mm Luger (9x19) Winchester 147 gr Ranger T-Series, we tested over 100 other self-defense loads, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for the full story.

My EDC Choice in 9mm
Review by Mr. Zorg
This is my everyday carry ammo choice in 9mm. I haven't found a bad performance result on any test of this ammo anywhere on the internet! I also found out my local county law enforcement uses Winchester Ranger ammo!

Everything you can get in a 9MM Luger
Review by JJMcD
This provides the right expansion and penetration for the 9MM Luger cartridge. Soft recoil, and amazing expansion. Clearly the one for the 9MM. Excellent BUG round.

Best L.E. 9mm out there.
Review by Jack Zeller
My department has switched to these rounds. They are amazingly consistent, accurate and as Lucky Gunner shows, penetrate deep and are the widest nastiest expanders of all. When Lucky Gunner doesn't have them I buy from Atlantic Tactical but you have to buy 200 rounds at a time and be L.E.

Review by Slapstick
An accurate and reliable round coming out of a 19. Low flash soft recoiling powder load makes it all around pleasure to shoot. It has a street credential that shows a lot of use with mixed results reported that are mostly along the lines of heavy for caliber loads. I'm wondering how well this would hold up through auto glass and car doors.?

Great defense round
Review by Art
I carry these rounds in my S&W M&P Shield due to the penetration and expansion performance. I feel this is one of the best 9mm self defense rounds.

Excellent Product (if you can get them).
Review by Vapor
I've been testing these in my H&K P30sk and found them to be highly accurate and very reliable. They are a great product when you can find them. you do, move some junk out and stock the cupboards, as you probably won't find a better self-defense round.

Ranger-T When you care to send the very best
Review by OilTrader
Hard to find, and when I do find it, its 500 rounds minimum (if that much is in stock). From my backyard testing, this is the best SD round out there. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Yes. Its the same round I carry in my 45s too.

Totally satisfied with your product
Review by Jazzlover
This hard to find ammo is what I use in both my Glock 19 and 26 for concealed carry . It is accurate, consistent and at a great price for defensive ammo
