Black Powder Cartridges

While thousands of black powder shells are still manufactured and will be until the guns for which they are built are worn out, yet we can consider black powder for big game shooting as obsolete. Very few men, indeed, would deliberately choose a black powder rifle and cartridge for hunting purposes, to-day, even for small game. I shall, therefore, in this work pay little attention to the old line of black powder game shells that were once well liked, but have outlived their usefulness. The one purpose for which our old friend saltpeter is still as well adapted as any is target shooting, gallery and match rifle. It is peculiarly fitted to arms from which thousands of shots are fired in the course of a season, because the wear on a barrel is very slight compared with nitro compounds and the necessarily jacketed bullets. While smokeless powders have been so perfected as to show accuracy and regularity equal to black powder, yet their wear and tear on a barrel will make many chary of using them in a fine match rifle.
