“The Winchester Black Talon was introduced in 1991 and pulled from the civilian market in 1993 due to public hysterics. Part of the allegations included the myth that the bullet was designed to defeat body armor. This video pits a 180gr 40S&W Black Talon against Level IIIA body armor to see if the bullet lives up to the myth.”
We’ve covered the history of the “Cop-Killer” bullet myth before, it’s pretty interesting. Suffice it to say it’s mostly urban legend, but with roots in fact.
