I haven't messed with your head in a while so it's time. When Lee Jurras and I decided to bring back the Howdah pistols on the Encore and G-2, I worked up 4 or 5 new cartridges. As Lee's condition got worse almost overnight, I decided to go with some of my cartridges that were already developed and proven so we could get at least one or 2 guns out for Lee to see before he passed.

After Lee died I decided to continue with the new stuff and make it available in standard Encores, G-2s and revolvers and stay with the original 6 that Lee OK'd for the Howdahs. Here are 8 new cartridges we developed in the last year or so. Seven of these we are still waiting on dies. Three of them were originally for the Howdah pistols, the rest for custom TCs and revolvers. The 4th one from the left is the 223 for size comparison. Let's see if you can guess the others.

well represented as the 221 Falcon, 241 Falcon, 338 Falcon, 355 GNR are all based on the 30-30 case, as is the 256 Falcon, 7 GNR, 30 GNR, and 400 GNR. There are actually 2 more based on the 30-30 that we are playing with right now that may end up being in the group.

I like Contenders in the old calibers...

Like 25, 6.5mm, 7mm, 8mm, etc. Some great bullet choices out there. Don't all have the super thick jackets for the SuperDuper Magmuns.

loading manual is taking so long. If you get one of the new calibers in a barrel and need loading data we can send it to you.
