The 6 mm. or .236 U. S. Navy has never been extensively used in sport, but this was not from lack of merit, but because the rifle from which it was shot was neither well known nor easily obtained. The rifle for this cartridge is no longer made, yet at this time there is a tendency to extol the merits of both rifle and cartridge. The 112 grain bullet has an initial velocity of 2,562 feet, energy 1,632 foot pounds, 200 yard trajectory 3.49 inches.
