I know this is "Law Enforcement" ammo, but where can us civilians get our hands on it reliably? I am specifically looking for 45acp 230gr standard pressure stuff.

The ranger t series is a little harder to find compared to the other law enforcement, duty grade ammo out there. Target sports usa almost always has the full winchester ranger series of ammo in stock and for a very good price but they are out of stock on most 45 acp right now. They do have it in the other popular calibers though.

Here is 45:

Here is some 9mm, instock:

All that being said, the 45 acp winchester ranger is our issued carry load at work. We get a great price on it and it has always been reilable but there are plenty of other good, LE grade loads out there.

All of the LEO's I know use Cor-Bon, so that's what I use.

Have you tried Ranger SXT? I think it shoots well.

SG Ammo Winchester Ranger T .45 ACP

Out of stock at the moment - but sign up for notifications, they're great folks at SG Ammo - excellent prices, quick shipping, and tend to have a great selection.

I should add that I've got a case (1,000 rounds) of Speer Gold Dot 230gr in .45 ACP and a case of Federal HST 124gr in 9mm from these guys...you might consider the Gold Dot in the interim.

Cheers,

Here you go...

I have and carry both but I think Federal's HST is a bit better than Ranger-T, not to mention more available.

Thank you all. HST is my very close second choice in 45acp. I was a Gold Dot guy for years, but if I rock Gold Dot bullets now it is in Underwood ammo.

I like the Ranger T stuff and both my 1911's shoot it very well.

Shoots very close to the same POI for my hand loads.

Ranger T series uses the SXT bullet design.

Hard to beat HST in 9mm, 40, 357sig, or 45acp. A lot will perform as well but pretty darn impossible to PROVE any better.

That's pretty much it in a nut shell. "Ranger" is nothing more than politically correct "Black Talon". Yeah, they've improved the design and performance somewhat. Or so some will argue. But I can't imagine equal wounds in equal people where there would be enough difference to measure or matter. "Black Talon's" only problem is it isn't new enough to make the, "Bullet Of The Month" club any longer.

Serious question - Why are you wanting that particular ammo when Gold Dot and HST perform just as well, for all practical purposes, and you don't have to jump through any hoops to get it?

Ranger T has been getting harder to find. Probably because the military is now buying a version of it by the tens of millions as the new enhanced performance 9MM ammo.
