A great self-defense round in 38 special that is engineered to the highest level, and represents the best of the experience, and engineering and capabilities that Winchester has as an organization. This is truly the penultimate offering from Winchester: the PDX1 Defender. Uniformity and reliability play critical roles in the development of these cartridges.
This manufacturing is uniform and reliable. It means you get consistent velocities and high tolerances from round to round. The velocity is 950 feet per second. The performance and expansion is uniform and reliable. It means you get big expansion every time. The speed and energy levels are increased due to the +P rating. It means you get faster rounds (950 feet per second) and harder hitting rounds (260 pound feet). You get a bonded bullet and deep penetration. You get better weight retention from that, with ideal penetration depths between 12 and 18 inches as per the FBI specifications.
This is a +P rated cartridge. As such you need to confirm that your firearm can handle the increased pressures and the increased recoil profile of the round. Many lightweight or small framed revolvers will NOT be suitable for this type of ammunition and your firearm manual can help you determine the capability of your firearm.
