Ammunition - Pistol/Revolver Cartridges

.17 Bumble Bee

The .17 Bumble Bee was born back when the longest barrel available for the Thompson/Center for its single shot pistol measured 10 inches. At that time, a number of reduced capacity cartridges were developed for what was thought to be a higher level of efficiency that could be achieved with full l...

.22 Remington Jet

Historical Notes:

The 22 Remington Jet, also known as the 22 Centerfire Magnum, was introduced jointly by Remington and Smith & Wesson. The former developed the cartridge, the latter the revolver. The first news of this cartridge leaked out in 1959, but production revolvers and ammunition were...

.221 Remington Fire Ball

Introduced in 1963, the .221 Fire Ball and its Experimental Pistol Number 100 were the brainchild of Remington's Wayne Leek. An abbreviated single shot version of Leek's Remington Model 600 Carbine, the pistol was introduced to the shooting world as the XP-100. During it development stages, the X...

.25 (6.35mm) Automatic (25 ACP)

Historical Notes:

This cartridge was introduced in the United States in 1908 with the Browning-designed, Colt manufactured, 25 Vest Pocket Ammunition pistol. It was introduced in Europe a few years earlier in the F.N Baby Browning, which is practically identical to the Colt. The design of thes...

.256 Winchester Magnum

When it was introduced in the Ruger Hawkeye single shot pistol in 1962, the 256 Winchester Magnum was quite a sensation. Back then, a 60 grain bullet at 2350 fps from a 8-1/2 inch factory test barrel sold lots of firearm magazines. But it apparently caused very few guns to be sold. Now most of th...

.30 Caliber Carbine Pistol

Designed as a U.S Military cartridge and adopted along with the 30M1 Carbine in 1941 by the Army, the .30 Carbine is nothing more than an offspring of the old vintage 1905 ,32 Winchester Self Loading cartridge.

A reader who fondly described his much used Ruger Blackhawk in .30 Carbine as a "po...

.30 Herritt

Introduced in the Thompson/Center Contender in 1973, the 30 Herret was a joint development of the late Steve Herrett and Bob Melek. Basically a shortened version of the Winchester .30-30 cartridge, the .30 Herret was once quite popular among handgun hunters and silhouette competitors. Case formin...

.32 Smith & Wesson Long (.32 Colt New Police)

Just as the .357 Magnum case is a longer version of the .38 Special case, the .32 Smith & Wesson Long is an offspring of the older .32 Smith & Wesson. Reference sources disagree on when the long version was introduced. One source indicates the .32 S&W Long was introduced with the Smith & Wesson M...

.357 Magnum

When introduced in 1935, the 357 Magnum was touted as the most powerful handgun cartridge in the world, a title it has since relinquished to other cartridges such as the .44 Magnum, 10mm Auto, and .41 Magnum. Even so, the 357 Magnum is still an extremely useful development. For plinking and paper...

.38 Smith & Wesson (.38 Super Police, .38 Colt New Police)

The .38 S&W was designed by Smith & Wesson and introduced during the late 1870's. Also known as the .38 Super Police and the .38 Colt New Police, the .38 S&W was once available in numerous revolver made by too many foreign firms to mention, plus U.S. manufacturers such as Harrington & Richardson,...

.38 Special (.38 Smith & Wesson Special), JHP

One of the all time great revolver cartridges, the .38 Smith & Wesson Special was introduced in 1902. For many years, a revolver in .38 Special represented the classic sidearm for lawmen, but it is now rapidly losing ground to various high capacity autoloaders chambered in 9mm Parabellum. Even so...

.40 SW (.40 Smith & Wesson)

Developed by Olin (Winchester) and Smith & Wesson, the new .40 S&W is destined to become the sensation of the 90`s. This cartridge is slightly shorter with less case capacity than the 10mm Auto. It is capable of producing real stopping power without excessive recoil and all in a very compact pist...

.44 Magnum (.44 Remington Magnum)

When it comes to squeezing maximum power from a revolver at a level of recoil that can be handled by any shooter who is determined to learn to cope with it, the .44 Magnum has long been, and probably always will be, one of the greatest cartridges to ever exist, mainly because firearm writers like...

.45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) FMJ

The .45 ACP and its Colt Government Model pistol hold the distinction of serving longer military careers than any cartridge/firearm combination ever introduced in the United States. Adopted in 1911, both were retired from military duty in 1985 when its foe in many battles, the 9mm Parabellum, bec...

.50 Action Express

Historical Notes:

The .50 Action Express (.50 AE) was developed in 1988 for the IMI Desert Eagle semi-auto pistol imported by Magnum Research, Inc. It is another development by Evan Whildin, then of Action Arms. It was part of a program to upgrade the performance of the semi-auto pistol throug...

6.5 JDJ

Introduced in 1978, the 6.5 JDJ and .375 JDJ are the most popular of an entire family of wildcats designed by J.D. Jones of SSK Industries for the T/C Contender pistol. One has to spend only a few days afield with these two cartridges to understand why. In the hands of an experienced hunter who h...

7.65 mm Parabellum (.30 Luger)

The 7.65×21mm Parabellum (designated as the 7,65 Parabellum by the C.I.P. and also known as .30 Luger and 7.65mm Luger) is a pistol cartridge that was introduced in 1898 by German arms manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) for their new Pistol Parabellum. The primary des...

9x17 mm (9mm Browning, 9mm Short/Kurz, .380 ACP)

Introduced by the Belgium firm FN in 1912, the 9mm Browning short is one of several pistol cartridge designed by John Browning. In some European countries, this cartridge has also been designated as the 9mm Kurz and 9mm Corto, but in the United Sates it goes by the name of .380 Automatic or .380 ...

9x19 mm (9mm Para, 9mm Luger, 9mm NATO)

Also called the 9mm Luger, the 9mm Parabellum was introduced in 1902 in the Luger automatic pistol. In 1904 it became the official military cartridge of the German navy, and two years later was adopted by the German army. In 1985, United States military forces discontinued the use of the long fav...
