The .264 Winchester Magnum

The .264 Winchester Magnum is a cartridge that deserved to do better than it did way back in 1959 and 1960 when Winchester unleashed it into dealer's shops in the form of the Model 70 Westerner. With its 26" barrel and special two diameter stepped bullet it was claimed to deliver 3,200fps with a 140grain ...

The .470 Capstick

The .470 Capstick is an unusual cartridge although the design is based on a simple idea; i.e. neck up the .375 Holland & Holland to take .475" bullets, which is the largest bullet diameter that the .375H&H case can handle. The cartridge was originally created by Colonel Arthur B Alphin of the A-Square rifle company ...

The .338 Winchester Magnum

The .300 Winchester Magnum

At the time of its introduction back in 1963 the .300 Winchester Magnum was a controversial cartridge. The fifties and sixties were the heydays of the cartridge "wildcatters" and there was no shortage of experimental cartridges being created by dedicated experimenters to achieve all sorts of performance improvements. Perhaps the most extreme of these was ...

The .458 Winchester Magnum

Many years ago down in the south of Australia I met a farmer who kept a .458 Winchester Magnum on the farm for kangaroo culling. At the time my rifle for long range kangaroo control way out in the wheat paddock was a 6.5x68mm with 140grain Sierra Spitzer Boat Tail bullets coming out of the ...

.41 Remington Magnum

To handle a heavy caliber revolver you need to work up to it and you need to keep that practice up.

Police practices around the world vary enormously down to jurisdictions where police only live fire with ...

The .416 Remington Magnum

The author of "Cartridges of the World", Frank C. Barnes described the .416 Remington Magnum as the "most outstanding factory cartridge introduced in decades" when the cartridge made its debut in 1988.
