I'd love to have some in .357 Mag (180 gr), but they are so rare now as to be too precious to play with at $65 for 20 last year, I assume more now! I did some field testing with a friend's S&W model 19 and black talons on various targets and they of course expand exactly as advertised. Too bad there is no current Win Ranger T version representing a newer generation of this round, either, as there is for most SD calibers.
