I enjoy Winchester Ranger 230gr. JHP bonded, which has the Talon bullet, the most evil bullet ever invented.

I'll have to take your word for that, I know when I was in the were replacing the lead cores with a Green nylon material and those were classified as Green because they were lead free.

These however will go through things that fmj and jhp would not, I was impressed by what saw in the video of the test that people performed on things other than gel and multiple water jug assailants.

This stuff is great if you can shoot, some say it doesn't penetrate deep enough to kill, the is a story of a contractor that shot a hostile in the ass and the round killed him. Maybe this stuff is urban legend and maybe the is the stuff that Lee Harvy Oswald was packing, I dont know but I purchased some and it what I'm carring until I believe other wise.

Yeah, upgraded in price from $30 for 50 into $25 per 25. What is that? About 50%+ increase in price, if my math is right.

I don't know about the price stuff. I purchased mine a couple of years ago. I was shooting a different brand, but after loading and unloading, the hollow points were starting to close in from the feeding ramp. I then did some research and found out that the Winchester PDX1's had a reenforced tips so that it can go through glass without deforming. I have not even seen the tips on these bullets even start to deform. With my line of work, I don't think I am going with any other brand now unless they upgrade these again. Try some online discount ammo places. They may have them cheaper.
