I knew quite a few cops back then and they all referred to them as "Black Felons". Once that started the race card came out and Winchester dropped them (under the "Black Talon" name). The design made a lot of other companies rethink how to make a hollowpoint bullet that would expand reliably without requiring very high velocities. It is a very good bullet but many other brands also offer similar designs that will open at handgun velocities. The name was probably a bad idea.
