I like the deal a lot as it comes in 50rd box which is unusual for SD HP ammo which normally comes in 20 or 25rd box andthe price for 50 rd box wasonly about 25-50% higher than any other HPs in 20-25rd boxes. I asked the guy in the store how it compares to say Speer Gold Dots or other more traditional HP ammo and he said that it's just as good. He also said that it came from some police surplus and that's why it was cheaper, but he guarnateed that it's still fresh. At home i noticed that on about 75% of these rounds there is something stuck in around the primer rim, something that looks like grains of powder of greyish-greenish color. I was a little worried so i took both boxes to the range and fired about 10 random rounds from each box - all went off fine. However, i never seen anything like that on any other ammo, including cheap ball rounds. Other than that all rounds look fresh - copper jacketing is light orange and brass is spotless. Anyone esle seen anything like that? What do you think that can be? Should i be worried about it? Any feedback on Winchester Ranger in general?
