The left cartridge is a standard .35 Remington. The right
cartridge is the .35 Remington Experimental cartridge. Note that the shoulder is much
sharper , the neck is just a little longer and there is less taper to the case body. The
.35 Remington Experimental cartridge was un-head stamped. When comparing just the case
dimensions, the two cartridges are identical with only slight variations due to
manufacturing tolerances except for case length. The .35 Remington Experimental
case is a
few thousandths longer.
Can any of you Remington collectors enlighten us on the history
of the .35 Remington cartridge? Please contact George
.408 Winchester Dimensions
Case Mouth Diameter
The .408 Winchester cartridge seems to have been developed
for the M1894 Winchester rifle in the 1960's. The cartridge is un-head stamped and is loaded
with a soft point, jacketed bullet. Robert Buttweiler had it in one of his auctions in
1993 and the cartridge sold for $27.50.
George mentioned that it is very similar to the
.444 Marlin. It is interesting to speculate on the competition Winchester and Marlin would
have had if Winchester had introduced this cartridge.
