Since I can't get on shotgun world, I will learn more about rifles. I see alot of people talking about PPC, TCU, BR, CCM, example 6mm ppc. I understand that there is a different from a 6mm ppc and a 6mm BR, but what do these letter spell
thanks

I was talking to a friend the other nite and I remembered this post. He has been a benchrest shooter for quite a long time and has shot in a number of national matches. He told me that the 2 P's were from the developers last names.C was for cartridge. I wish that I could remember the names but probably couldn't spell them. He gave me the history on the cartridge also.
This cartridge came about from changing the shoulder on a Russian case,that they were using to beat all comers back in the 70's. He also made mention that the rounds for the AK & SKS rifles is the same basic design.Just necked up to .30 cal. If I can remember the next time I see him,I'll get more info.

The letter attachments can be very individual identifiers.While there is no rule or reason to them, most tell something about the cartridges origin. In the case of the PPC cartridges, it stands for Pindell-Palmisano Cartridge the developers. Others you might run across are TCU-Thompson Center Ugalde, STW-Shooting Times Westerner, And JDJ-J.D. Jones...Hopes this helps.
