I had an opportunity to get some Winchester Ranger SXTs in 45 ACP but now that I've placed my order I've been informed AFTER the fact, of course, that they are out of stock until December. They offered to switch my order from the standard +P stuff (black talon without the scary name) to a bonded version of the same stuff. Can someone explain what exactly bonded ammo is? and if you think it's a good idea to use this stuff as SD ammo or if I should just wait for the standard SXTs ? I've been carrying federal hydrashoks, but am almost out (been using them at the range to make sure they feed/eject properly in my gun) and I wanted to try out the SXTs after reading a few articles where they performed the most accurately and reliably during tests with various pistols. links: bonded: http://www.nles.com/store/customer/product.php?productid=1985&cat=0 standard: http://www.nles.com/store/customer/product.php?productid=1823&cat=174&page=1 Thanks!
