Winchester adds .380 ACP to their "Bonded" line of ammo

From the Winchester Press release:

Winchester® Ammunition’s Supreme Elite™ Bonded PDX1™ line generated a lot of attention in 2009. To continue meeting the demands of consumers, Winchester has extended the Bonded PDX1 line by offering it in .380 Automatic and .45 Colt for 2010.

The Bonded PDX1 line uses the same technology the Federal Bureau of Investigation uses as its primary service round. The Bonded PDX1 is engineered to maximize terminal ballistics, as defined by the demanding FBI test protocol, which simulates real-world threats.

NEW Offerings:

Symbol Line Grain Jacket

S380PDB .380 Auto 95g JHP Bonded

S45CPDB .45 Colt 225g JHP Bonded

FTC stuff: I received nothing from Winchester for this post, I’m just printing a press release.  Anyway, if you’ll recall a couple of weeks ago, the post from ENDOTactical that had the Winchester Ranger penetration/expansion diagram – the bonded rounds performed much better when fired through barriers than the non-bonded rounds.  Introducing a .380 in the “bonded” format will provide another option for the literally hundreds of thousands of shooters that rely on the .380 for their defensive pistol.


  1. Yeah, that .45 Colt looks cool. Every time I see one in gun stores I think about buying a Judge if for no other reason than to have a midsized revolver in .45 Colt.

  2. I work for winchester and those are both true! I work on the machines that load the stuff so any ?’s feel free
