Sitting here cataloging cartridges instead of having dinner with old friends in St. Louis….
I was looking at a 3.7 x55.9mm “Schirnecker” and then took a look at the relevant US Patent only to discover his name, at least on the patent, was spelled Schirneker and not Schirnecker. I checked a couple more of his US patents and they too had his name as Schirneker.
Most of the references I have seen spell his name Schirnecker and typos on US Patents are not unheard of. So, has anyone got any official German (or non-US) documents that show his name ??
…… and, NO, I don’t collect Schirneker rounds!!
