Winchester +P+ Ranger Differences

Mr.Camp's book recommends Winchester Ranger RA9TA. I have found RA9SXTP. Both carry the name Winchester Ranger for Law Enforcement +P+. Will someone tell me the difference between the two?

Thanks

Willow

Winchester +P+ Ranger Differences

I went and looked at a box of 127 +P+, which is all I have on hand, and it's marked RA9TA.



Guessing only: I do know that Hornady makes a line of XTP (eXtreme Terminal Performance) bullets, while Winchester has a line of SXT ammo. I think it possible that the RA9SXTP might simply be a somewhat never designation.

Hello. I may be remembering this just backwards but the "SXT" stands for "Supreme Expansion Talon" and I think the "P" on the end is for "Police." I think that this is just an earlier version of the RA9TA. The Ranger line of LE ammunition has undergone several changes over the years.



Best.

Mr. Camp,

Thank you. Two boxes were a gift from a friend and I did not want to "look a gift horse in the mouth". On the other hand, I wanted to make certain this is the same defense round that you favor.

I am enjoying your book.

Thanks Again

Willow

Winchester +P+ Ranger Differences

Hello. There's not going to be enough difference to tell on the receiving end in my opinion. Being willing to actually shoot another person in the vitals without hesitation when required and having the ability to put the shot or shots where they need to go will mean much, much more than the slight differences between the SXTP and the RA9TA.



Take care and best.

SXTP is the older(original) number for the 127+p+. Slight changes to hollowpoint and on average higher velocity. Still older stuff should do 1200+ from a 4inch. But in my testing the 9TA is around 50-70 fps faster on average
