Don't forget the Needle fire. The Rollin White patent really turned the firearms industry around back in the days. Even though technology has advanced so much the center fire system has only been improved, not changed.

The needlefire was not really an evasion, nor primarily a revovler cartridge. It was a European developement for early rifle cartridges.

I love reading things I have no idea about. I have heard of a lot of these cartridges that you all are talking about, but never seen them or knew any of the history. Thank you all for making me a little bit smarter today.
