Gents, this is a problem that has been frustrating me for a long time now. I have tried to get hold of a Winchester representative with no success so far. I would like to get in touch with somebody here who can explain to me the evolution of the Ranger line, starting with the original Black Talon.
I have found conflicting information on this and my understanding at the moment is that the line goes like this (in chronological order):
- Black Talon (Lubalox coated bullet, in nickel case) 6 sharp petals
- Ranger SXT (Lubalox coated bullet in brass case) 6 sharp petals
- Supreme SXT (Copper bullet in nickel case) 8 blunt petals
- Ranger-T (Copper bullet in nickel case) 6 sharp petals
There is also a plain Ranger JHP +P with no petals but I am not interested in that, I want to know how many versions of the petal design there are. Surely there must be a chart somewhere. Can somebody point me in the right direction please.
Also if somebody has samples of the complete line (bullets only) I would be interested in purchasing those (I need 3 samples of each, pulled from the case). Fired samples from a water tank would be a bonus, extra payment for those. I need samples in 9mm only, but I need all the weights.
Thanks in advance for your help.
