.303 CARBINE




.303 CARBINEŚWould the .303 carbine be a good all-around rifle for hunting such game as bear, moose and deer? Is the .32-40 H. P. as powerful as the .303? What is the killing range of each? What is the length of the .32-40 cartridge, over all?

Yes, the .303 is a good arm for the game mentioned and is a little more powerful than the .32-40 H. P. According to the Winchester catalogue the muzzle velocity of the .303 is 1925 feet per second; penetration with soft-point bullet, 11 7/8-inch pine boards; with metal jacketed bullet, 42 boards. The .32-40 H. P. as given in the Marlin catalogue has a velocity of 2,000 feet, a penetration of ten boards with soft-point bullet and 38 boards with the full metal patched bullet. Both cartridges have an accurate range of about 1,000 yards, and while the .303 with its heavier bullet gives a little more penetration, the .32-40 because of its flat-point bullet is almost as deadly, if not fully so. The length of the .32-40 cartridge, over all, is about 2 7/16 inches.
