101 grain .25 Remington cartridge


#1

Anyone have any information about what years the .25 Remington was offered in the 101 grain pointed bullet and what the muzzle velocity for that load was? Did anyone other than Remington offer bullet weights besides the 87 grain and 117 grain.

I’ll answer part of my own question concerning the MV of the 101 grain .25 Remington cartridge. 2330 fps. I still don’t know the years the 101 grain loading was offered.

The 101 gr. FMJ spitzer loading existed as early as 1918, as it’s described in Whelen’s The American Rifle of that year. My 1941 Stoeger doesn’t list it. Jack
