Velocity and Hunting Ammunition

I think that we, the conservative and the radical alike, can make up our minds that the day of the 3,000 foot velocity hunting cartridge is upon us. The known and the good will have to give way, first to the experimental, and then to the perfected cartridge of the future. Class 1, ammunition will at last yield to class 2, though these may be modified considerably from those that at present hold sway.

Game of the future is going to be scarcer and wilder, necessitating shots at longer distances. Trajectory must then be considered of the utmost importance. Moreover the rifleman of the next decade will be better trained to snap and running shots than any marksmen we now have, and whether the bullet lands in a quarter of a second or a half second will make a wonderful difference, where the target is two or three hundred yards away and traveling at the rate of thirty or forty feet a second.

To the credit of the new type of ammunition, too, it should be remembered that it is the most accurate sporting ammunition in use. Experiments by the War Department demonstrate that the '06 ammunition will keep ten shots in a three inch circle at two hundred yards while the soft point bullet of the .30-40 and similar rifles will only pattern in an eight-inch. Granted that game is to be killed at three hundred yards and farther, we must have the accurate cartridge.

With the exception of the .275-303 which has been included in class 2 because of its high velocity and small bore, all the cartridges in this class are as like as the peas in a pod. Some of them may be loaded with different sizes of ball, but the characteristics and the ballistic data given have reference only to the Spitzer bullet.
