.220 Swift History


#1

I suspect that .220 Swift fans may be interested in an article published in the 2009 Gun Digest. It attempts to sort out some of the conflicting history behind Wotkyns’ development of the .22-250, its promotion to Western and Winchester as the .220 Swift, and Winchester’s eventual release of a different cartridge configuration with the same name. The author includes a pretty good annotated bibliography as well.
