Another great magazine with stellar articles! Kudos to the WACA staff that make the magazine so great and continual encouragement for those that submit articles! I thoroughly enjoyed the Winchester Case Inserts–Shipping Crate Advertising article and the 1885 article, among others.

How long till you get your 85 book out? I had no idea they chambered the 85 in .22 BBC. Surely they were used for target shooting only. I couldn't imagine trying to take game with that caliber.

Sincerely,

Brady,

Thanks for the compliments on the magazine articles.

One of the 22 BBC Single Shot rifles letters as being shipped to the "Porter Shooting Gallery".  

The vast array of cartridges that were available in the Single Shot rifles has long fascinated me!

Finally got a chance to read the latest edition. Great article on the Single Shot, Bert! Cleared up several misconceptions and pointed out quite a few things I hadn’t noticed. I’ll never understand the “why” of all those chamberings but thanks to the article I now have a working knowledge (or at least a good reference document) of “what” and “when”.

I must admit I pace myself, Rick. I read the Goles’ article about carton inserts today. Who would have thought a handful of colorful bits of cardboard could be so interesting?
