A lot of folks ask us if you have to be a cop to order Winchester’s law enforcement grade Ranger series ammunition. The answer is no! So long as you have a 40 S&W firearm and plan to do a healthy amount of target shooting, you have every reason you need to order this case of ammo!

This round’s 135 grain bullet is not a typical FMJ. It is a frangible bullet, which is composed of fine copper and tin particles. A frangible bullet is hard enough to clear the barrel but brittle enough to get pulverized the instant it collides with any surface harder than itself. If you’re firing on steel targets, then a frangible bullet’s crumbling terminal performance represents a much lower risk of taking a little fleck of shrapnel to your face or torso.

A frangible bullet also happens to be lead-free. That means this ammo won’t scatter toxic lead particles into the air during ignition or impact, and it also means it won’t deposit any lead fouling inside your barrel.

Its special bullet aside, this is Winchester’s usual high-quality American-made ammunition. These lower-recoil training loads have the reloadable brass cases, non-corrosive Boxer primers and low-fouling powder you expect from one of the world’s biggest names in shooting.

A: Thanks for reaching out Frankie! I'm not a lawyer, I'm not qualified to give legal advice, and no information offered on this website is meant to be interpreted as legal advice. I am familiar with New Jersey's ammo laws, however, and I do understand that you can't use hollow point bullets for self-defense outside of the home. The best I could recommend is our highest-quality range ammunition, since it's loaded with non-expanding bullets. I'd advise a 180 grain bullet; the heavier bullet will conserve more momentum as it penetrates soft tissue, and therefore has a higher probability of penetrating to an effective depth for personal protection. To that end I'd recommend Speer Lawman. It's American-made, it's reliable, and it was developed for law enforcement training exercises. We have the 180gr TMJ ammo available by the case: https://www.bulkammo.com/bulk-40-s-w-ammo-40sw180tmjlm-1000
