.50-95 Winchester Express
 
 

The largest calibre for the Winchester Model 1876 "Centennial" rifle. Rifles of this calibre were sometimes called the “Cat Gun” due to the fact that many of them were used in Africa and India on lions and tigers. The short 300 grain express bullet had a reputation of delivering a tremendous blow up close on soft skinned game, but was also known to loose it’s velocity quickly at extended ranges due to it’s fat and stubby bullet shape. Rifles have a barrel twist rate of approximately 1 in 60”, so it is unlikely that bullets heavier than 350 grains will stabilise. Cases can be made by turning the rim down to .625” on .50 Sharps basic and shortening the case to 1.92”. Overall bullet length should be held close to 2.25” (+ or – a few) for reliable feeding.
