    Anyone know where I can purchase these in/near the Charlotte,NC area? None of my local dealers carry them and they seem to have no answer as to why.

    Google for Winchester ammunition.

    There are a number of web outlets that sell ammo as I understand it.

    A company called Midway is one.

    It seems to me, though, that Ranger SXTmay belimited by the manufacturer to "Law Enforcement Only." I have a vague recollection to that effect, though.

    You could check by visiting Winchester's website.


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    That's pretty much what I've been able to dig up so far. It's not illegal for civilians to have it, it's mostly a Winchester deal limiting access to it. I've no problem buying online but everysite I've checked wants a copy of your drivers license and that has me concerned for potential ID theft.

    Yup, understand perfectly. That is why I buy the Winchester SXT's. They are available just about anywhere. Unfortunately, a box of 20 is about the same price for a box of 50 Winchester Rangers or a box of 50 of Federal HST's. I certainly would like someone to explain that to me. Especially, when all 3 are considered to be premium ammo.

    I've seen Black Talon's on Gunbroker.com and the best replacement I've seen for it is Golden Sabres i think by the same folks.
    ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson

    Golden Sabres are made by Remington, but they are great ammunition. There is an LEO version called the Bonded Golden Sabre as well. It's on par with Federal HST and Winchester Ranger in terms of difficulty to find and performance.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I have read the current generation Gold Dot bullets are right up there with HST and the Bonded Golden Sabre.

    The 718 ft/lbs behind it (in my carry load) can't hurt either.

    ETA: Official Ballistics Gelatin results for the DoubleTap loads in both Golden Sabre (non bonded I believe) and Gold Dot. Note the 165 grain Gold Dot at 1 inch expansion!!

    Anything over 620 ft lbs is field artillery!!
