Ammunition Reloading: Get It Right With A Cartridge Poster
30-06 Springfield (left) and 8mm Mauser rounds are close enough in size that the Mauser can be fired in a 30-06 chamber. This will happen once. The gun will be wrecked, along with the shooter’s face, by the tremendous pressures generated by an oversize bullet. (from “ABCs of Reloading”)

If your ammunition reloading activities lead you to load similar calibers, extra caution is needed to keep the different calibers of cases and loaded ammunition separate. A poster with full-size images of cartridges is a handy way to get it right the first time.

The Rifleman's & Safari Classic Poster provides 211 full scale/life sized vivid color images of both modern and classic rifle and handgun cartridges (170 rifle and 41 handgun).

All the major US cartridges (Winchester, Remington, Ruger and Weatherby) are covered. Many of the military surplus cartridges (handgun and rifle) from WWI until current are covered as well.

Classic European and safari cartridges like Mauser, Jeffery, Holland & Holland, Breneke, Lott, and Rigby (including flanged and rimmed) are also covered.Examples of Nitro Express cartridges covered are the series of 400s, 500s up to the classic 577, 600 and 700 Nitro Express.

    • Hello bear,
      According to our resident ammo expert, the answer is nothing. The round was originally developed by Remington (and Smith & Wesson, but S&W has never been a producer of ammo, so the name goes to Remington), so it is properly .44 Remington Magnum, but colloquially .44 Rem. Mag., .44 Magnum, or .44 Mag.
