Does look like yet another reiteration of the Black Talon. Like they did with the SXT line (Same Exact Thing). 😁

Why mess with a good thing.

Can?t be as deadly, though. It ain?t black. 😎

Yeah and the black talon was a cop killer, the platinum tip is not.

LOL! Black Talon got my pistol and Hog Chasing started back in early 90's When out with a bunch of guys in swap buggies in Southern Fl. and we got down and started following the dogs. Running and Gunning! Cornered a hog and the guy was worried that it would charge us. .45 to the forehead said different! Been hooked ever since!

Looks great, I agree Kim it would be nice as a reloading component.

I used the Winchester Platinum Tip factory load to shoot this groundhog at 92 yards.


The Platinum Tip was quite accurate in that revolver, and if I recall, it crossed the chronograph at nearly 1400 fps from the Stalker's 8 inch barrel. I thought it wood make a fantastic deer load, but never found out.

I have however, had superb results from Winchester's discontinued 250 grain Partition loading. The Winchester Supreme loads are high quality for sure.
