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.

"The Bonded PDX1 is the best of the best when talking personal protection ammunition," said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition's vice president of domestic and international marketing and sales. "It is capable of penetrating a wide range of barriers from clothing to plywood, and still effectively stops a threat."

Winchester® Bonded PDX1™ features include:

  • Proprietary bonding process-Welds lead and jacket together to work as a unit controlling expansion and providing superior retained weight.
  • Hollow point-Works with the bonding process for outstanding performance through tough barriers and impact velocities/ranges.
  • Jacket notching-Six segments help promote positive, consistent and programmed expansion at a variety of impact velocities and ranges.
  • Copper alloy jacket-Contoured for maximum upset over a wide range of velocities/ranges.
  • Nickel plated shellcase-Helps ensure positive gun function through smooth chambering and shellcase ejection.

"All of the Bonded PDX1 design features working together as one system help ensure consistent upset," said Flaugher. "This technology helped secure the FBI business and is the only choice for personal protection available."
