Classic Rifles & Cartridges
Some Cartridges Just Belong In Certain Rifles
I’m more a rifle guy than a cartridge guy. Debates over hair-splitting differences between cartridges I find tedious. I’m more interested in rifle/cartridge combinations (which I’ll admit is another form of hair-splitting).
The Winchester 94 rifle and .30-30 cartridge go together. So do the 1903 Mannlicher-Schoenauer and the 6.5×54 cartridge. On the other hand, pre-’64 Winchester Model 70s in .35 Remington are valuable collector’s items today. They’re valuable because they are scarce, and they are scarce because together, they made a stupid combination no one wanted.
