Winchester Ammunition has developed a bullet that was specifically designed to perform better than other hollow-point missiles. The resulting cartridge, the Black Talon bullet offers a low-velocity missile that retains its weight, penetrates even when interrupted by intervening objects, and remains capable of expansion in soft tissue. The bullet causes extensive tissue damage and presents a hazard to those responsible for handling it after expansion.
