.320 Short Revolver

Introduced in 1870, by the British designer Webley, the .320 Short Revolver was made by U.S. ammunition makers until the 1930s. Many of the European manufactures chambered small revolvers in this caliber. Webley used the .32 Short Revolver and .32 Long Revolver as inspiration for their future designs.

The ballistic of this caliber makes one wonder it’s usefulness as a .22 Long Rifle cartridge has more energy. Many knowledgeable firearms experts have questioned this caliber, and some have called it “The Most Useless Cartridge” in the under .38 caliber category. The .320 Short Revolver is capable of propelling a .313” dia., 80 grain bullet at 575 fps. with 59 ft.-lbs. of energy.

Roberson Cartridge Company is a custom manufacture of Vintage, Obsolete, Hard to Find and Wildcat calibers.
