Just a quick question. Any problem using this bullet (WB45JHP230) with 45 GAP?

Also, does anyone know if this JHP is the same bullet used for the Winchester Ranger SXT 230gr ammo - 45 GAP for LE? I have 350 rounds of this ammo and would like to duplicate it for target purposes.

Thanks, in advance, OD

Same bullet, no problems.

I shot the Ranger T 230 gr. out of my model 38 and got 831 fps / 352# KE
That's good performance for the barrel length.
No problems.

Thanks Gentlemen. Another question, maybe obvious, but I will ask it.

I noticed that the factory Winchester Ranger SXT 230gr bullet is averaging on OAL of 1.087. Would you use the same OAL for the above?
Most FMJs in 230gr. are averaging 1.120 - 1.135.
