Why Ballistically Matched Ammo Matters

This means a shooter can buy the T (Train) rounds, which utilize full metal jacket bullets, which are best for targets, and have less recoil and made with lead-free primers, and are also generally more economical to shoot when performing high volume trigger time at the range. Ample range time is vital to becoming a proficient shooter.

Then, whether used for concealed carry or home defense, the gunowner can load their firearm with D (Defend) loads and know that in an extreme emergency, the defensive rounds will perform exactly the same as the rounds they trained with, which will give them the added confidence needed in a stressful situation.

Too often, shooters practice with loads that may have different velocities, bullet profiles and overall performance from the ones to be used in actual defensive situations, meaning the cartridge may perform totally different from what was practiced.

To provide gunowners with the utmost confidence both on the range and in the event of an emergency, Winchester offers their W Train & Defend loads in several of the most popular defensive calibers including .380 ACP, 9mm, .40 S&W and .38 Special. For 1911, or for that matter simply .45 ACP fans, Winchester also introduced their ballistically matched Win 1911 loads, designed to provide both training and defensive benefits for fans of the more than 100-year-old pistol design.
