Thread: An interesting one - How many original cartridges?

    An interesting one - How many original cartridges?

    After a lot of reading about ballistics and different ammunition before settling on the rifles I chose I got to thinking "how many original cartridges are there?" as it appeared that a great many popular chamberings started off as something else.

    Not having the massive knowledge of some of the guys on here I tried looking but was proving too complicated so thought it'd be interesting to ask.

    What I was after was the number of completely original cartridges not ones that were necked down (or up) versions or ones in existance, ie not a .243 Win as it is derived from a .308 Win or most of the magnum chamberings being necked down.

    You will have a pretty good idea if you limit your research to those introduced before 1900.

    Isn't 30-06 developed from 30-03?

    May I add .250-300 Savage, .280 Ross and .375H&H belted rimless to the 20th Century list?

    You can't ignore the British proprietary calibres, or the Weatherby Magnum series.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.
