THE .22 NEWTON-SAVAGE HIGH-POWER

This cartridge is the latest development of ammunition and rifle for small game shooting. The powder charge is twenty-five grains of DuPont Lightning, and the metal patched, sharp pointed, soft-nose bullet weighs seventy grains. It is given an initial velocity of 2,761 feet, and its trajectory up to two hundred yards is practically the same as that of the '06 Springfield. The accurate range of this ammunition is over five hundred yards, but it is not intended for a long range rifle, but for work on small game and for that attractive outdoor rifle practice of which marksmen are so fond.

There is no doubt but this cartridge will prove effective on anything up to deer, having about the same power as the .25-35. For shooting at estimated distances up to say three hundred yards I believe it to be the best cartridge that we have, since it comes as near to shooting point blank at two hundred yards as anything now built in this country. The moderate recoil of this cartridge and gun would further accuracy when used by the average rifleman who has not been trained with military arms.

For work on such beasts as coyote, woodchuck, or fox the soft-nose bullet could be used with paralyzing effect. Where smashing was not desired, a full mantled ball would be best. The shell can also be reloaded with a fifty grain bullet, and a reduced powder charge for lesser game like squirrels and rabbits. The twist of the rifling, one turn in twelve inches, is such that plain lead bullets and reduced powder charges will work nicely.

On the whole it appears that the Newton-Savage is the last word in small game rifles. It is not intended for shooting tiny birds, but neither are they "small game." This cartridge is adapted to the lever-action repeater made by the Savage Arms Company.
