During the early 90's, maybe earlier, Winchester turned out a round called the "Black Talon". The Black Talon had a rather short retail life. Winchester later came out with a very similar round called the "Fail Safe". By overall appearances, they were pretty much identical i.e the "BT" and the "FS".
Anyway, what was the cause of the Talon's short but rather successful retail career? If my memory seves me right, I remember telecasts about the distructive qualities of it's petals upon impact/expansion. The media among others stated that the hand gun round was finding it's way into criminal hands. The medical sector stated that the wounds inflicted by the Talon were massive, so much that the preservation of life was made even more difficult. In short, this media frenzy ended the Black Talons life.
This is basically all that I can recall. There seems to be a friendly debate erupting here with some good friends and I. Could you folks give us some light on this little squabble so that my friends and I can settle this?
I keep telling them that I am right but I just can't swing the other half.
I think they do this just to irratate me. :
