    I can't quite see the nose of the bullet but all of the BT's that I shot were loaded in nickel cases. I also do not remember there being any primer sealant used,my guess if they are they have been handloaded not factory. SJ 40

    The cartridge appears to be a "Black Talon", however the packaging does not appear to be original.

    They came in the stiff Styrofoam tray (as used in most Winchester products), or a black plastic "tub" with a softer more flexible type of material, (almost like a closed cell foam).

    I have a box that was given to me, 357mag.
    They are in a box of twenty box is marked Black Talon.
    They have never been loaded into a cylinder.
    I wonder what they would be worth?

    Nickel case = commercial Black Talon
    Brass case = Winchester Ranger Talon (T)
    Same bullet in many instances (10mm/200gr for instance).
    I've seen the Ranger product come in both the crappy crumbly styrofoam tray (more recent) and the neat tray/dense foam cutouts (older production). As for primer sealant, I'll dig some out at home and take a look; if memory serves most of the Ranger Talon stuff I used had reddish sealant at the annulus.
