The S&W No.3 Russian Model Made at Tula in Russia

I didn't realize that the Russian .44 was the reason that a .44 caliber cartridge now shoots a 0.429 bullet. (Yeah, your .44 Magnum is really a .43 caliber, but that is just the way things are.)

Of course, the most modern example today of a heeled bullet is the .2LR

Fascinating stuff.
