    Another Ranger SXT question.

    Now are the Winchester SXT rounds the same as the Ranger SXT rounds? The reason I ask is because the boxes that say ranger dont seem to be on store shelves anymore. Atleast not around here. The white box that says SXT are however. Are they the same round?

    I want to pick up one box of most of the major HP mfg's so that I can fully test my new 9mm to determine which round the gun likes best.

    Also. I have decided to run 124 .gr +P rounds in my 9mm. I cant find them in the SXT online anywhere, and here on the Oregon coast I cant get any retail, and no one can order some for me.

    Would anyone out there be willing to get me a box or two and mail them to be for a small fee plus payment for item and shipping?

    Thanks in advance!

    No, the Winchester SXTs are not quite the same as the Ranger SXT line. The Ranger is the law enforcement line and are a little harder to come by.

    Here is one online place you can get Rangers from.

    Thank you for posting a reply! That site has them in 147gr standard pressure rounds only for the 9mm. Many people have said for 9mm you really should have +p rounds and a lighter bullet right?

    I would be very happy with 147 grain 9mm bullets.

    The lighter bullet vs heavier bullet is a big debate. I myself would prefer the 147 grainer. Give them a try. I also hope you have some Hydrashoks in the mix.

    I would rather carry a standard pressure 147gr than a 124gr +P round personally.

    I must admit that there is probably not much difference between the rounds, I just shoot the 147 better (or it shoots better out of my pistol).

    Find which one you like best and which ones your pistol likes. I don't think one is any better than the other.

    Thanks guys! I am going to be heading out to several gun shops in eastern oregon today on a road trip. I will try and get a wide variety. I am eager to try the short barrel gold dots! they seem to be all the rage in the GD lovers community.

    Thanks again everyone for the info and help.

    I personally prefer the 127gr. +P+ Rangers in 9mm but I would not hesitate to use any of the Ranger SXT line. They are all good shooters.

    For anyone in Central Florida: Shoot Straight in Casselberry has a TON of Ranger SXT (RA9T). $25 for a 50 round box.

    Gel, I believe Cascade Guns and Ammo in Roseburg still carries that if you are looking. Also Gun Crafters in Salem will do special orders also.

    Personally, I would go with Corbon. I think they are little better round.

    Thanks! I will be testing corbon in the next few weeks. I currently have settled on TAP mainly because its fed perfect and had a small grouping. Thats all that really matters. It expanded very well!
