|Proprietary Rifle Cartridge
|The 50 Alaskan was developed by
Harold Johnson and Harold Fuller of
the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska, sometime
in the 1950s.
Harold Johnson necked out the .348
WCF (Winchester Center-Fire) case
to .50 cal, and Harold Fuller developed
the barrel, marrying a .50 cal barrel
to an old Model 1886 rifle.
This Big fellow cartridge started out as
a true wildcat cartridge.
This is a true proprietary rifle cartridge
used in custom built lever action rifles in
only a few fine custom gun shops.
