After I answered I thought of the high power, but I didn't know the capacity of the BAR, for some reason I thought it was 10.

The Bannerman conversion is 30-06 if I'm not mistaken.

John M Browning never made the Browning Hi-Power. he was still working on it's design, commisioned by FN, and it recieved a patent award almost two years after his death in 1926. Diedonne Saive actually finalized the design and it was his staggered magazine design that was used. the Hi-Power wasn't even put into production until almost nine years after John M. Brownings death.
