Smokeless Powder Cartridges

The low pressure smokeless, such as is used to replace the black, is a makeshift, and like any other makeshift must in the nature of things be temporary. Another decade should witness the end of all the old-time black powder cartridges, the low pressure nitros, and the big game rifles in which they are used. Even the made-over cartridges, those that have been changed to high velocity like the .88-35, .40-70, 45-90, and .50110, while they have undoubted merit, will probably soon give way to cartridges of like caliber and greater power. For instance, the .50-110, and the Winchester .405 have practically the same ballistics, like weight of bullet, velocity, and striking force, yet few would select the .50 in preference to the .405. However, should the .50 be remodeled to take a 400 grain bullet with a powder charge that would drive it 2,500 feet a second it would find admirers, notwithstanding the fact that for American use it would have a surplus of power.

Fashions change in rifles and cartridges almost as readily as with ladies' hats. The present tendency is to discard good and well-tried ammunition of moderate ballistics in favor of larger bores of extreme power, and military ammunition of velocity approaching 3,000 feet; this will shortly be made the military standard velocity it seems, and many game shooters will also prefer it.
