I have seen fit to separate our hunting cartridges into classes 1 and 2, partly on the ground that one class was designed exclusively for hunting purposes and the other as a rule for military use, partly for the reason that they differ essentially in ballistics.

Those listed in class 1 are strictly game cartridges, no army rifles ever having been chambered for anyone of them. On the contrary those embraced in class 2 were either originally intended for military arms or they have been modeled after the military ammunition. A radical difference in the two classes of cartridges is that those of class 1 are rarely used with other than soft-nose bullets, while expert opinion leans to the belief that the plumber 2 class are more effective with full mantled, sharp pointed bullets.

The cartridges heading this chapter, though varying widely in caliber and energy, yet otherwise have very similar ballistics. They unite in a happy medium of range, power, accuracy, velocity, trajectory, and moderate recoil. Undoubtedly some of them would be found much better adapted to certain purposes than others, yet all have been thoroughly tested by American big game hunters and have proved to fulfill admirably the purpose for which they were designed.

Excluding the .25 calibers, many consider that any of the cartridges in this class have all the power needed for any game on the American Continent. Free recoil is something to be considered in the choice of a rifle, and with the exception of the .350 Winchester all of those listed in class 1 are of the non-kicking persuasion. Moreover breech pressures are light compared with those in class 2, and this furthers length of life in a barrel with absence of metallic fouling and other troubles most familiar to the military man. Practically all of them use soft-nose bullets exclusively, handling them with regular accuracy. Velocities in these cartridges vary from 1,985 feet for the Savage to 2,200 for the Winchester .35.
