In the 1970's the late Elgin Gates decided to designed a series of new Magnum cartridges.
All the new cartridges were dubbed Super Mags by Gates and were1.610" in  length, or about three-tenths
of an inch longer than standard Magnum Cartridges. Mr. Gates made up cartridges in .357, .375, .44, .45,
.50, and .60 caliber. In the 1980s  with the help of Elgin Gates,  Dan Wesson Arms produced SuperMag
revolvers in .357,  .375, .414, and .445. The basic idea behind the Super Mag series was simple, it strives
to offer performance that was superior to  every magnum revolver cartridge of a given diameter in
existence at that time. This was achieved by lengthening the cases to both increase powder capacity and
boost operating pressures. These Cartridges were made from Star-line Brass, not from another caliber so
some people may consider them proprietary cartridges, and others may consider them wildcats or now
maybe obsolete?
