    I remember hearing that they are now marketed under a new name. I've been wanting to pick up a few boxes to see if they are as good as the old Black Talons I remember shooting hogs with when I went hunting with my dad in TX. Anyone know what the new name is?

    The most overhyped ammo of all time. DRT gets honerable mention.

    Agreed. Black Talon got way too much attention.

    The Barnes TTSX bullets work great too.

    From Wikipedia:

    I can't speak to hogs, but I carry Ranger Ts in my CCO.

    I don't know about all that they made their way back in both my glock 30 and back up clip for the last couple years,... Bought on sale in the nineties.

    I thought hogs were more of a SoftPoint ammo situation, for penetration reasons?

    The Black Talons were able to shred the cartilage that protects the front shoulder. It usually took 2 rounds to get the job done but it was a ****ing blast.
