I stumbled onto a quantity of pretty clean WW 22 WCF. Is there any interest in collecting it? I figured it'd be perfect at the small end of the collection.


Good luck and good shooting.

Its worth saving. I have a 1903 chambered thus + a few boxes of ammo, but they are as rare as hens teeth so I don't shoot them. For a collection that might be O.K. but don't plan on increasing the value over the years. On the plus side of thehistory of this round, this was the one that Ad Tuepperwein used for his record setting display of thrown blocks of wood being hit by that little 22. If you are not familiar with the story, Google it; Adolph Tupperwien was a real icon in the shooting world.


Never mistake motion for action.

I'd be happy to sell you 100 rounds or so.

The 22WCF is the father of the 22 Hornet and the 32-20, IIRC.

Seems like it was called the 22-7-45 in the 1800s.
Edit
My mind took the weekend off...the WCF is the father of the Hornet, but not related to the 32-20.


Good luck and good shooting.

Who hasn't seen the photos of Topperwein sitting on the mountain of wooden blocks. I always assumed he used a 22LR, but I thought they'd have to be mighty soft wood to break like that. The WCF has almost 20% more velocity and a heavier bullet.


Good luck and good shooting.

Some collector should jump on this as they are a very rare cartridge anymore. I have a wall hanger + a little ammo but I don't want to throw $$$ away. Those 22s have a great value. Some sellers are asking $4.00 a round.
