Sharps Straight W

The .45-110 was introduced in 1876. This was the largest of the several case sizes Sharp introduced at the time althought the .45-120 was introduced some years later. Many gun manufacturers have realized the nostalgic value of this cartridge and have begun to chamber some of their rifles for this load.

We set the Maximum Average Pressure for our data the same as the .45-70 at 28,000 P.S.I.
