    Winchester Ranger t 165--ballistics & street perfomrance?

    I am considering using Winchester's Ranger t series 165gr. for home defense .
    Has this ammo performed well in the streets in regards (with proper shot placement) to incapacitating a BG?
    Does this ammo penetrate deeply enough(12inches or more)?

    Time to grab a cup of Java-thanks for your opinions>

    Assuming you have a .40 S&W.... Why not the 180gr? Ranger T is excellent ammunition but my personal preference is Federal HST in .45 ACP. I opted for +P just because it's available but the standard velocity does just as well in SD situations.

    According to Ayoob Massad, the 165gr ranger T is the top performer in the .40 ammunition. In terms of street performance it is without peer.
    The following is a quote directly from Ayoob himself in one of his articles

    "In .40 caliber, the original 180-grain hollow point at subsonic velocity has worked better than expected, but the star performers in .40 ammo tend to be high tech bullets such as the Winchester SXT or Ranger T, the CCI Gold Dot, and the Remington Golden Saber with 155-grain bullets at 1200 foot-seconds or 165-grain bullets at 1140 to 1150 feet per second. Using the 165-grain Ranger in their .40 caliber Glocks, the Nashville, Tennessee, Police have amassed a long series of impressive one-shot stops."
