The .25-20 Single Shot was designed by J. Franis Rabbeth a European designer of metric cartridges, as the (metric)
6.5x41Rmm cartridge around 1982 for use in different single-shot rifles, Remington, Stevens, Maynard, etc., in Europe.
Later in the United States around 1886 the cartridge (under the American .25-20 Single Shot name) was introduced
by the Union Metallic Company and later by a few other companies for use in USA single-shot rifles.
The cartridge was replaced by the more powerful .25-20 WCF (or .25-20 winchester) in the mid. 1890s.
