SMALL GAME RIFLES TARGET RIFLES FOR SHORT UNKNOWN DISTANCES

The demands upon a rifle intended for woodchuck, geese, turkey, coyotes, foxes, hawks, crows, jackrabbits, cottontails, and squirrels, are that it must have ample power, the trajectory must be flat enough to shoot at any distance up to one hundred yards without change of sight, the arm itself should be light, the accuracy must be good for a long series of shots, and the ammunition inexpensive. Not all of the cartridges mentioned comply with the condition fully, and some are better adapted to one species of game than another—as will be shown. Perhaps we should have limited this small game ammunition to nitro powder shells, but a couple of those listed, while loaded with black powder, have enough merit to be included.

Preferably ammunition for this sort of shooting should have a minimum velocity of not less than 1,800 feet, with a muzzle energy of at least 500 pounds, but we have only a few cartridges that will meet these requirements, and must, therefore, accept others. For game like rabbits and squirrels a lower velocity and less energy are all right, but for shooting above one hundred yards flat trajectory is very important.

It should be borne in mind that rifles of the class we are treating here are intended as much as anything for rifle training, shooting in the woods and fields at various marks, unknown distances up to three hundred yards. Bullets for this purpose must have range, accuracy, flat trajectory, and not be too much affected by the wind. Moreover, the question of recoil is not to be overlooked where the novice is being put through his paces—a kicking rifle would have to go into some other class.
