gewehfreund recently post one pet peeve

Patrone is not a model designation or any other sort of descriptor. It simply means cartridge or caliber (i.e. Caliber 22 Long Rifle or Caliber 22 Lang für Büchsen).



I thought that I would add another pet peeve.


The 459 stamped on the barrel of commercial .22LR dating from 1924-1946 is not an inspectors mark! I know Speed's Smallbore book says it is but Speed was wrong and he corrected it in his later Archives book. The 459 refers the gauge of the barrel. I.e. 459 round lead balls the diameter of the bore would weight one pound!

So a .45 cal. muzzle loader shoots a one pond ball? I don't think so.

I agree. But the post had nothing to do with .45 cal muzzle loader!



However, 459 round lead balls the diameter of the bore on a Mauser .22LR does weight 1 pound!

Apples and oranges. These are two different bore measuring systems. I'm sure you'll see it if you read the OP and give it more thought (and that's not meant to be snarky)

OK, I think I got it. You mean 459 .22 cal. lead balls, right? Thanks for clearing that up.
