Where can I buy Winchester Ranger T in 9mm?

Where can I buy Winchester Ranger T in 9mm? I have a box of the old "Black Talon's", and I hear the Ranger T's are even better. I know they are listed as Law Enforcement, but anyone (of age) can buy these. Just help me find where. Thanks for all of your help.

No where really. This +P+ ammo is not available for retail sales. Can only be purchased by law enforcement agencies - so...unless you know a wheel in law enforcement you're out of luck. Just a question for you - why would you want to put your firearm through possible abuse by using the stuff. I believe that using this ammo voids the warranty of your firearm by most manufacturers.

This is flat out wrong on so many counts!

Ranger T's are not ALL +P+ loads and are available through regular retail channels. I am NOT LEO or military and have bought several thousand rounds of Ranger T's without having to jump thru a single hoop!

To answer the OP, none of my regular channels have any available. I would recommend google or gunbot. They will show up from time to time. Not only do I appreciate the terminal ballistics of this load but the flash brightness is the lowest of all the self defense loads I've tested, in some cases, by far. This will save your night vision in low light scenarios.

I agree that the Rangers are a slight improvement over the Talons. Hold on to those Talons. Collectors seek them out and their value will do nothing but go up.

Is there a regular Ranger ammo? I thought I saw a box of regular Ranger ammo the other day. It was 357 sig ammo.

Not the best

Research the ballistics tests on this round and you will find the bullet really does not expand all that well and over penetrates the target. The more expansion, the better job of stopping the threat.

Yes, it is available as both Ranger Bonded and T series.

Both are available for general public.

Ranger T is available in standard, +P, and +P+ pressures. You need to check which you are purchasing. I will use the +P+ Ranger T loads in my Glocks but limit my Sigs to +P Ranger T loads. This is strictly my opinion and in no way represents any manufacturer recommendation.

Here is a link to the Ranger T products that are available, including all calibers, bullet weight and the pressure ratings:

http://winchesterle.com/Products/han...s/default.aspx

And for the Bonded:

Hopefully this clarifies the products which are manufactured, availability is another story. These products are available on the civilian retail market.

Just curious, Indy78. Which round do you recommend?

Ranger is typically LE ammo so it can be hit or miss to find
