Winchester Auto-loading Rifle

The Winchester Company constructed the first of these rifles, a .22 caliber, and their next two larger models were of inferior power, range, and trajectory, giving the impression that under their reloading principle it was impossible to make automatic arms up to modern requirements. However, the latest arm of this company, the .401 proved this conclusion erroneous, for it can be considered a nearly ideal big game cartridge, with an initial velocity approaching 2,200 feet, trajectory of less than six inches, and striking force of more than a ton. Doubtless should there be a demand for it the arm will be adapted to ammunition of still higher power because larger bores with increased bullet energy would entail little if any greater breech pressure than the cartridges now in use.

The ammunition of the Winchester automatic rifles, .351 and .401, is a positive advance in cartridge making. They are loaded with a condensed powder which, while giving full velocity, permits a shorter shell, and in turn a shorter frame, lessened weight of action, and other advantages. I see no reason why this sort of powder should not replace the bulkier kinds in other rifles, because it is compact and cheaper, while giving as regular and high velocity with no increase in breech pressure. If a cartridge two inches long will do the work of one of three inches, what is the use of carrying about the increased amount of metal?
