.318 WESTLEY RICHARDS, .333 JEFFERY

These two cartridges belong to the most advanced type of big bore, high velocity, hunting ammunition. The .318 drives a 250 grain ball with a muzzle velocity of 2,500 feet; the .333 has the same weight of bullet which it sends at the rate of 2,600 feet. Both of the cartridges are loaded with projectiles of various kinds, weights, and shapes, full-mantled, sharp-pointed, soft-nosed, hollow pointed, and copper capped.

With the sharp-point, full mantled ball the Jeffery is said to have the greatest penetration of any hunting bullet made—sufficient to shoot clean through an elephant. Also it is one of the flattest shooting of rifles at long range, maintaining its velocity better than the lighter bullets of military design. The .318 is charged with Axite powder, the .333 with cordite, and both are declared to be extremely accurate at any and all ranges, even exceeding a thousand yards.

From reports of hunters in Asia and Africa the .318 and .333 will give a good account of themselves upon any game that lives. However, their especial field is long range shots in the open at game that requires hard hitting and yet is not particularly dangerous. Most Englishmen have a penchant for still more powerful ammunition where animals have to be shot in cover and stopped instantly, like a tiger for instance.

The ballistics of the .818 are, velocity 2,400 to 2,500 feet, energy at muzzle 3,400 pounds, breech pressure 19 tons, 200 yard trajectory 4 inches, weight of ball 250 grains. The .333 has an initial velocity of 2,600 feet, striking force 4,000 pounds, 200 yard trajectory 3 inches, length of bullet 1}£ inches, breech pressure 20 tons, shell contains a large air space, free recoil 35 pounds. Like the foregoing this cartridge is shot from double rifles, single-shots, and bolt-actions. Guns for the .318 are made by Westley Richards, the .333 by Jeffery.
