.405 Winchester

The 405 Winchester was introduced in 1904, but came obsolete in 1936. It is the most powerful rimmed cartridges ever developed for the Winchester 1895 lever-action rifle. It is adequate for any North American big game at short- to medium-range and has been used successfully in Africa on all species. Even though Theodore Roosevelt used it on his lion hunt in Africa, John Taylor rate it as a poor choice compared to other available chamberings for African use. 

This text is based on information from “Cartridges of the World”, Hodgdon reloading manual, the cartridge designer and/or own resources.
