    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

    Yes, 230 grain BT's. They were loaded in both nickel and brass cases.

    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.
