.22 WINCHESTER AND .22 STEVENS

For the sake of economy in space we will bracket these two cartridges together. The former has a trifle more velocity and the latter somewhat greater power. The trajectory of either is about two and a half inches at one hundred yards, the velocity a trifle better than 1,500 feet, the energy 237 to 275 foot pounds.

As target cartridges neither would compare with some of the rimfire .22's, since the heavy black powder charge fouls too much, but as game cartridges they are superior. Either of them is capable of keeping ten shots in a four-inch circle at one hundred yards. Both of them could be improved by being charged with smokeless powder behind a metal patched bullet, and perhaps this will be done some time. Loaded with nitro powder, giving a muzzle velocity of 2,000 feet, they would have a much wider field of usefulness. At present they are chiefly useful for work on rabbits, squirrels, hawks, and crows, though with hollow-point bullets they will kill larger game. Only single shot rifles are chambered for these two cartridges.
