Default Calibers that have come and gone

What calibers have you seen that became super popular for several years and then ended up falling out of style and becoming hard to find?

Iím curious because you hear all this talk about the 6.5cm being a fad and will eventually go away. Has there ever been a caliber as popular as the 6.5cm that eventually disappeared or became harder to find.

.222 Remington has faded away some. Used to be the king in shooting matches and truck guns.

220 Swift does not seem to be all the rage anymore either.

Too many good choices in the highly efficient 6.5 size to go away.

I think the 7mm-08 hurt the 7mm Mauser as far as popularity goes.

There has been a lot calibers come and go, some of the classics continue to hang around like the 22 Hornet.

Ones that I have personally seen:

7mm STW
the WSM family
any bottle necked rimfire
357 sig
260 Rem
a lot of the AR hybrids

Going back in history:

222
222 Magnum
264 Winchester Magnum
300 H&H
7-30 waters
the Weatherby line

We as shooters are a fickle bunch, whats popular today can be gone tomorrow and vice versa. I can remember when the 22 Hornet and 45-70 almost disappeared. I can also remember when the 7mm STW was on every magazine cover and praised in every publication. Will the 6.5 CM go away? Highly unlikely and it will probably continue to be a factory offered cartridge but I see it's current popularity waning as the kool aid wears off. Every new cartridge offered in a factory gun is designed to increase gun sales, not fill a need, which is great for the gun industry. A strong gun industry only strengthens our gun rights.

I second the 5mm. My grandfather had one and passed it down to my dad. It was a nice little gun, rimfire and 20 grains or something like that. It hits pretty hard for varmints in the 50-80 yard range though.

My dad's big game rifle (which actually belongs to my deceased grandfather) is a 7mm Shooting Times Westerner. Don't see many of them anymore and there are only a few ammunition companies still offering it, his regular deer rifle is a .264 Win Mag, that cartridge has pretty much gone the way of the dodo too and don't know why, everyone wants a 6.5 caliber but forget about the ol' "bean field" cartridge.

I shoot a 6.5x55, not gone, but not popular.

All the JDJs are gone, .307 Winchester, Weatherby's line, amongst others.

The 7X30 Waters has some popularity in the Winchester 94s but not a lot, but the 7X30 Waters is one of the most popular T/C Contender calibers. The most popular Contender calibers are 7X30 Waters, 357 Rem Max., 30-30 Win., 223, then the 45-70, 45 LC/410 barrels and the 44 Rem Mag. Then there are a bunch of other calibers available. There are a lot of calibers that may not be the most common main stream calibers, you will find at Wal Mart and Academy, but are very popular niche calibers.

That's a pretty decent list. I would add to that the .375 Winchester. It was once available in the Marlin lever action as well as the Winchester Big Bore 94. I have a 94 as well as a Contender pistol in this caliber and my ammo is closely monitored It is almost unavailable and when you do find it, it's higher than a cat's back.

It was renamed the 7mm Express before returning to .280 Remington. IMO it's the absolute best medium game cartridge out there, and can go up to include elk with the proper loads.

I can not think of a round that was popular, that has faded. The main caliber that I can think of that was extremely popular and has seemed to lost a lot of popularity, but still common, is the 30-06. The 308 has increased in popularity, largely taken over a lot of the 30-06 market and then created a new market. Then there are so many more new calibers, that are good rounds and many younger generation shooters, that take to the newer designed rounds, because those are what are talked about on the internet. It has been a while since I have heard someone say they killed something with a 30-06. When I was a kid, even up to 20 years ago, most everybody had a 30-06 in the closet. But there are still many millions of them out there and they still kill a lot of game each year, just don't hear about them as often anymore.

There are a lot of calibers that have mostly been forgotten, such as 6mm Rem/244, 284 Winchester, 264 Win. Mag., 7 mm Rem Express/280 Remington, 307 Winchester, 356 Winchester, 32 H&R Mag., 41 Mag, 454 Casull, 45 Win. Mag, 44 Auto Mag., 357 Max., 444 Marlin, 308 Norma Mag., 358 Norma Mag., 375 Win., 7 mm Remington Ultra Mag, 8 mm Rem. Mag, 222 Rem Mag., 350 Rem. Mag., 6.5 mm Rem. Mag., 358 Win.

Some of the older calibers that have faded, that used to have more popularity and likely were very popular way before my time, but not having been around years before it's hard to say how popular they were, 257 Roberts, 32 Winchester Special, 220 Swift, 44 Special, 30 Rem., 35 Rem., 250 Savage or 250-3000, 300 Savage.

Then the old military calibers that used to have a some popularity for years, but have faded are, the 7X57 Mauser, 8X57 Mauser, 6.5X55 Swede, then the 303 British. The 30-06, has always been the most popular military originated hunting round. The 30-40 Krag, never had a lot of popularity anywhere.

The only calibers, that I would say were quite popular when I was younger and before my time, that have faded in popularity, to the point of you don't hear about them much at all anymore, are the 222 Rem., 338 Win. Mag., 38 Special, 45 Long Colt. I know there are still a lot of them out there, but those are the calibers, that were popular, that you don't hear much about anymore, then the 30-06, is close to being there.

The calibers I listed first, are calibers, that the gun and ammo companies made and tried to promote, that did not take off, very well, they may have had and most of those calibers to still have some popularity, but were never big, popular calibers. They were just a new thing, that was hyped and faded. Many of those calibers have been adopted as favorites for niche shooters. Such as the 357 Max, 7X30 Waters, 30 Rem. 45-70, 41 Mag, 454 Casull. But then others like the 6.5 Rem. Mag, and the 350 Rem. Mag., just never took off. The calibers I listed were most all designed and first sold sometime after the 1940s.

I was unaware that the WSM family (in particular the 270 and 300) are going the way of the Dodo bird, I thought they were doing good.

And, the 260 while maybe being supplanted by Creedmoor, I don't think is dead or even on life support.

6.5 will go away most places. The deer are small enough in Texas where the round will probably stay pretty popular. Where the animals get bigger, it will fade in popularity.

I never said they were dead or dying, just responding to the OP on what cartridges were hot and then not. However, the WSSM siblings are in danger.

.222 Remington has faded away some. Used to be the king in shooting matches and truck guns.

220 Swift does not seem to be all the rage anymore either.
My dad still has a .222 Rem Mag. that was his father's. I want to start reloading just so I can use it.

The foreign military calibers like 8mm and .303 probably have a lot to do with the cheap surplus ammo drying up.

That would be so cool, I hunt with a marlin saddle gun my dad bought new in 1959. I killed a mountain lion and the bear in my avatar with it
