    Winchester Ranger 9mm Bonded 124 +P Gr load

    I've been using the 147 gr Rangers in the glock 17's and 26's I carry until I found some 124 gr +p bonded Rangers which I've starting using in the 3.5 inch barreled g26's.

    The velocity on this load is 1180 with 383 fpe from a 4 inch barrel. With the polygonal bore of the Glocks, the .5 inch difference is negated as they are known for higher than listed velocities by most accounts.

    I hedged my bets with the g26's and went with the 124 +p grain loading due to it's bonded core. If for some reason it doesn't need to go through hard targets, the jacket will still hold together if hitting bones.

    Anyone using this loading currently? Anyone have thoughts on the load itself?

    I believe anything in the Ranger-T series will get good performance.
    Speer Gold Dot 124gr.+p is another 9mm with a good reputation. I think the 9mm with the best rep is the Ranger-T 127gr.+P+, but it's a little hot. Corbon DPX 115gr. might be something to consider as well. For me, I can't afford to do a reliabilty test with the DPX because of the price for 20rds. I can test the RangerT & Speer because of the decent price of a box of 50rds.
