Win Ranger-T +P 230 gr
Finally got a chance to shoot some of the +P Winchester Ranger-Ts. Recoil is a bit snappy for a .45, but not enough to slow the follow up shots.
While it was the least windy day at the range since fall, the wind was still enough to move me and the targets. Vertical spread was less than an inch, but the horizontal was 2 - 2 1/2" off an improvised rest. They shoot to the same POI as the standard velocity 230gr loads.
While I like the Ranger-T in the standard velocity loading, the extra recoil is slight enough that I am switching to these +Ps.
They've been in my XD45 since I've owned it.
I have both loads and have recently added Federal HST's also to the 3 different calibers I carry 9MM, 40S&W and 45 ACP. I use the standard loading in my Springer Micro Compact to keep recoil down a bit but I have run some of the +P's thru it.
