The latest candidate for the favor of the high velocity, Spitzer bullet devotee is the .25-50-117 Newton Savage High-Power. The cartridge has not been used enough to afford any very reliable data as to what it will do, especially on game. However, there is no reason to doubt but that it will be as successful as others of its class. Its bullets shows the highest experimental velocity of any cartridge ever built, 3,500 feet, and its striking energy is about the same as that of the Springfield '06.
