<br>There is a thread running on history and this got me thinking about one of the most under rated Ballistics desginer of cartiadges of the 20th century. You seldom see his name or hear of his work in the 1910,20 and 30's.
<br>I am speaking of Charles Newton. I woundering if you would share your thoughts on his work and what he brought to our collective interest. I am aware that he designed the follow cartiadges..
<br>I am sure I have missed some and that is part of the reason I am asking.
<br>Given the powders and what the state of art was at his time, it amazes me that these cartiadges of his hold up so well to this day. The 300 Savage is the bases for the .308, the 256 is basicly the 6.5-06 that is comming into vogue now with many a wildcater, and the 250 savage is a sweat dual purpose, better then most 6mm in my mind.
