THE .35 WINCHESTER
This cartridge might fairly have been placed with the big bores, but falls short of the 3,000 pounds of muzzle energy that is the minimum with them, so I have put it in the present class. In power it shows what the .33 Winchester and .35 Remington might have accomplished if given a few hundred feet greater velocity. The .35 Winchester is well liked by all those who have a partiality for ample power and do not mind the recoil which must accompany it. In all respects, striking force, velocity, and trajectory, it is an advance upon the preceding cartridges, having an energy at one hundred yards equaling the others at the muzzle.
There are many other cartridges, like the .30-40-220 Krag, .303 British, 7, 8, and 9 mm. Mauser which might have been placed in class 1, but they are being remodeled to take heavier powder charges in connection with light Spitzer bullets and so have been promoted to class 2.
