25-45 Sharps

New drawing Coming

In 2012, the Sharps Rifle Company introduced the 25-45 Sharps. Despite a name that suggests some historical significance, this is nothing more than a 25-caliber version of the case used for the 223. Maximum pressure is specified at 60,000 psi and overall length is identical to the 223, so it works in the AR-15 platform with standard AR magazines.

With a 24-inch barrel and best propellants, loaded to full potential, it can launch 87-grain bullets at close to 3000 fps without exceeding specification pressure. This matches advertised ballistics of the original factory loads for the 250-3000 Savage. As such, anything the 250 Savage will do with an 87- or 100-grain bullet, the 25-45 will do just as well.

The heritage of this case dates to the 38 Colt cartridge of the 1860s and before that with the 1839 introduction of the 36 Colt Paterson cap-and-ball Revolver.
