Winchester Ammunition’s new Hybrid X 124-gr. 9 mm Luger +P load blends new bullet materials and design elements with features in use for well over a century. The fluted polymer/copper tip provides the same fluid-displacement design as the Inceptor ARX bullet launched in 2015. The tip is seated into the four sections of a pre-fragmented lead core, which provides the mass needed to increase the bullet’s weight to 124 grs. The core is then pressed into a copper jacket for reliable feeding and accuracy at a listed velocity of 1225 f.p.s. for a nominal muzzle energy of 413 ft.-lbs. As the bullet travels into fluid-filled media, it fragments into six distinctive components and penetrates to a depth of 10" to 12" in ballistic gelatin. winchester.com
