The FBI has just signed a 1 year contract with Winchester for them to provide the FBI with all of their pistol ammo needs.



From reading the press report, it appears that they selected the new bonded Ranger ammo in a 180 gr 40 S&W load as their new standard issue service round. It is a pretty big contract, and is valued at $54 Million.



I guess FBI agents must train a lot???




Here is a link to the complete press report:

Strange! What is this new "enhanced 40 S&W bonded service round" ? This new round must have been impressive to win that kind of contract. Most of the data I have seen Winchester had a very high rate of core separations with thier rounds. What the hell have they been up to behind our backs?

Its a new version of Winchester's bonded 180 grainer. It will apparently replace the current bonded load.
