    45ACP 230g Ranger-T +P

    I am currently trying 230g Ranger-T +P in my .45. They feed just fine and accuracy is solid. Best of all, 50 of these cost about the same as 20 of others primium ammo.

    The only unknown about these round is how well do the current version of the SXT bullets perform. Anybody know anything about these?

    I used ranger sxt in my 45 gap. I sold my G37 because ammo was too expensive, but the ranger ammo was the best performing defense ammo I had for it. I used the 230gr standard pressure (they didn't have +p for gap). I also use ranger 127gr +p+ 9mm in my G19; its the only 9mm ammo I'll carry. It's what I'd carry in 45 auto.

    They perform just fine, but I feel you are better off with the standard pressure load in that round, a little deeper penetration due to less expansion earlier from some of the testing results I've seen around.

    When I carry a 45, it's with the Ranger 230 standard vels. In fact I carry the Ranger standard loadings in both carry calibers I use for SD

    but the +P is better for non-urban general carry, where range could be longer and the use of the pistol not limited to SD.

    It may be 9mm, but it should be a good indicator to how the .45 would perform.

    Apparently due to production variability, some lots of standard pressure have failed to open reliably. DOCGKR has recommended the +P version in .45 unless shooting known LOT #'s of standard pressure that have proven to be ok. The +P has a little extra velocity to improve expansion reliability. Check out tacticalforums.com for more detail.
