I don’t follow ammo prices that closely but some folks pay a premium for Black Talons as retro stuff. It is my understanding that the modern Ranger ammo is essentially the same thing. As far as pricing is concerned do a search on GB and see what it is actually selling for, that may help give you an idea.

I sold 2 boxes (40 rounds) 230gr. .45 ACP last year on a local forum for 3 bucks a round.

Some people pay stupid money for the stuff.

The old Black Talon has taken on collector status. The Winchester Ranger XST is the same round, but without the name. You could easily expect to get $3-$4 a round for what you have,especially being a boutique caliber like 10mm.

Good luck.

Have easily over 1,000 of the original Black Talons in "pre banned" packaging in several cartridges. Mostly 45, 357, 44 and other common handgun calibers. Also have a huge pile of the white box "law enforcement only" marked boxes that hit dealer shelves within a month of original packaging dissapearing which most gun shops were selling to anyone who knew what it was and put money on the counter. May have to crack some long sealed cans before some other old hoarder floods the market with his stash.

Its not banned or anything ..But its not made in that packing etc any more ( they still make Lubeox ? coated rounds ) and SXT and ranger ammo is pretty much the same thing sxt the joke goes meaning same exect thing

It is just normal HP ammo but it does have a cult statues due to its rather nasty history and people do pay good money for it

Pretty much the same thing. The name "Black Talon" sounded scary to the pussies and liberal women so Winchester just essentially "rebranded" it and put it in new packaging. I still have a few boxes of the original around though as well as the Ranger STX branded rounds.

Yes they marketed some rifle ammo under the Black Talon trade name. I have a couple boxes in 300 Win Mag and last time I saw any for sale was bringing $100 per twenty round box. Seen it in 308 to 338 magnum.
