BTB 318 Westley Richards Lead

Behind the Bullet: .318 Westley Richards

A rimless designed made for use in the Mauser-style rifles, the .318 Westley Richards was released sometime between 1906 and 1910, and became one of the most popular medium-bore cartridges for hunting African game.

Behind the Bullet: .35 Remington

How did a cartridge developed for an autoloading rifle come to be one of our most revered lever-action cartridges? We take a closer a look at the .35 Remington.

Behind the Bullet: .405 Winchester

Generating just over 3,200 ft.-lbs. of muzzle energy, the .405 Winchester was—at the time of its release in 1904—the most powerful lever-action cartridge available.

Behind the Bullet: .350 Remington Magnum

Introduced in 1965, the .350 Remington Magnum could be considered the original short magnum. Using the belted Holland & Holland case responsible for so many excellent designs from the 40s, 50s and 60s, but shortened to be wedged into a short-action magazine, the .350 Magnum would mimic the performance of the .35 Whelen.

Behind the Bullet: 400 Legend

The 400 Legend takes the 350 Legend concept a step further, giving hunters a straight-walled cartridge fully suitable for both bolt-action rifles as well as the AR platform, conforming to the collective statutes set forth by a number of Midwestern states.

Behind the Bullet: .17 Winchester Super Magnum

If velocity is your thing, and you want the speediest rimfire cartridge currently available, look no further than the .17 WSM.

Behind the Bullet: 350 Legend

The 350 Legend is designed specifically for hunters to deliver massive downrange energy transfer with improved penetration from a modern straight-walled cartridge.

Behind the Bullet: .303 British

The .303 British has a deeply rooted history in the era of exploration and is tied to the adventurers and hunters who headed to the wilds.

Behind the Bullet: 26 Nosler

The first of the Nosler proprietary cartridges, the 26 Nosler remains a flat-shooting, hard-hitting choice for hunting open country. Being a 6.5mm cartridge, it will use the high ballistic coefficient projectiles which retain their energy downrange, resist the effects of a crosswind and offer a flat trajectory.

Behind the Bullet: 6mm Remington

Introduced in 1955, the 6mm Remington was designed to be a dual-purpose cartridge that could handle varmints and predators just as well as it could deer and similar-sized game.
