PISTOL CARTRIDGE LISTS

by www.cartridge-corner.com

 

LEGEND FOR THE CARTRIDGE CHART

Notes:Bullet diameter and length can vary by several thousandths amongst similar cartridges.  The sizes listed are those that are most commonly encountered or that were available to measure.

Cartridge Length may also vary and is not a particularly useful measure for identifying cartridges. Lengths do vary , depending upon load type and bullet weight, and by manufacturer and date made.  An example is the 45-70 cartridge: 405gr.  Loads from the 1870s were about 2.625" long, while current standards call for a maximum length of 2.55".

Case types: A=Rimmed bottlenecked; B=Rimmed straight; C=Rimless, bottlenecked;D= Rimless Tapered,  E=Belted, bottleneck; F=Belted, straight; G=Semi-rimmed, bottleneck; H=Semi-rimmed,straight; I=Rebated, bottleneck; J=Rebated, straight; K= Other.

 

 

A)30-30 Win. B)38-55. C)308 Win. D) 30 Carbine. E)264 Win Mag. F)458 Win Mag. G)356 Win.H)401 SL. I)284 Win. J)50 A.E

Unless otherwise noted all dimensions are in inches.

Primer type:  S=Small rifle (1.75"); SP=Small pistol (.175"); L=Large rifle (.210"); LP=Large Pistol (.210'), B=Berdan; B-1=Berdan #1; B-2=Berdan #2( Berdan Diameter in inches); Bx = Boxer. DWM and RWS part number are sometimes indicated where applicable

Note on Blackpowder primers: Not all companies used the same primer type or size in the same caliber or length case.  For example, the 45-70 was usually loaded with a standard large-rifle diameter primer.  However, Marlin's version used small-rifle diameter primers and Sharps ammunition used Berdan primers. Many Companies such as the WRA Co, also used different primers in the same caliber of cartridge over the years. Primer type and size listed are what appears to have been the most common size and type used in most commercial loadings.

V=Various versions and lengths exist.

Year Introduced: This is the year the cartridge was released/patented. If 2 dates are given, the second date represents the commercial ammunition introduction.
