I bought several boxes of the Winchester Ranger T ammo that says Law Enforcement on it.I was concerned too and after I did a bunch of reading this is the conclusion I have come to.
Winchester Ranger ammo is essentially the same thing as Winchester PB1 which can be found in many sporting/outdoors stores. However, the PB1 will have a much higher pricetag. Probably around twice as much.
Both the Ranger T and the PB1 bullets were built/designed off of the old Winchester Black Talon bullets that were voluntarily pulled from the market back in the 90's due to publicity reasons. From what I have read, the Black Talons were a revolutionary new hollow point that did extraordinary damage to tissue compared to what was on the market at the time, and this did not win very many points with surgeons. In the past decade or so, most hollow points have used technology similar to those Black Talon and therefore the lethality of most have increased, IMO.
So down to the question at hand. Is it legal to buy and use the Winchester Ranger T (Law Enforcement) bullets? In everything I have read, yes. From my understanding, Winchester company will only sell those bullets directly to law enforcement as a matter of policy though. So when you are buying them online, you are buying from someone that is either a LEO or has connections to one.
