Rifle Cartridges-What is the largest rifle cartridge made in the United States and what company makes it?
The largest caliber rifle cartridge made in this country is the .58, made by the Winchester Repeating Arms Co., and adapted to the old time transformed muskets.
The largest cartridge adapted to American rifles of the present day are the .50-110-300 Winchester, High Velocity and the .405 a close second. The Winchester Repeating Arms Company make their single shot rifle in .50 Eley size, for English trade, the rifle being used in India and Africa, but the rifle is not on the American market, I understand. No doubt this is a very powerful cartridge, as all of those are that are intended for use in India and Africa.
