.321 Greener Multiball

, ,


This a multiball loading of the .321 Greener. It was developed by W.W. Greener and was made from a modified .450-31/4” Nitro case. It dates from the mid-to-late 1920’s and was not a commercial success.

The distinctive longitudinal flutes retain the 3 projectiles. Note the top 2 bullets have a coned hollow base to accept the nose of the next projectile. The rearmost projectile is retained by a stab crimp at the bottom of each flute.

Note the use of cordite powder, and a Berdan primer.

This round was not headstamped.

A single ball loading was also made. This was a 155 gr. softpoint loading.
