    The other day I was shooting with a friend of mine and he pulled out an old box of Black Talon ammo in .40 cal. This of course started the talk about the ammo when it was available and all the propaganda created by the media that ultimately stopped the production of this ammo and the Black Rhino ammo that was soon to follow. It was such an interesting design and so my question to everyone here is what ammo is available today that is close to or the same design as Black Talon?

    I believe that Winchesters PDX1 is their new version of the Black Tallon. If I'm mistaken in this, then someone will along in a few to correct me, and inform us both!

    I will have to take a look. If they named it the PDX1 in the first place I wonder if it would have gotton so much hype from the libs?

    i would love to be able to buy the bullets unloaded and be able to load them myself but it seems that the actual bullets used in the PDX1 rounds cannot be purchaced,

    I believe after they stopped selling Black Talon the joke was the SXT in Winchester Ranger SXT stood for Same eXact Thing. It was Black Talon minus the black coat.

    The way I heard it, Winchester stopped making the Black Tallon brand because folks were walking into gun stores and asking for Black Fellon ammo.

    I still have a couple boxes of the Black Talon in 9mm, but I also have some of the Rangers. They seem to shoot the same, penetrate the same, and expand the same. One of the best SD bullets I can think of.
