7mm GRADLE EXPRESS

This is the rimless version of the Gradle Express. It was developed during the 1950's by Roy Gradle of Santa Barbara, CA. The original cartridge was based on a heavily modified 348 Winchester case. Except for the rounded shoulder and slightly longer neck, it nearly mimmicks the 7mm WSM. There is a full article on the history of the 7mm Gradle Express in Rifle #248, (January 2010)
