CAL. 22 Mod.1895 EXPERIMENTAL CARTRIDGE

The US Ordnance Department did some experimentation in 1893 regarding a sub .30cal rifle. Frankford Arsenal was instructed on the 4th of January 1895 to supply a .22 cal. case and bullets for testing. There were also plans to develop a .20 cal. rifle, but results of these firing tests were not impressive and the project was scrapped.
