6mm Lee Navy
6mm Lee Navy, also known as the 236 Navy, was first produced in Dec.1893 as a "rimmed"
cartridge by the U.S. Navy and later produced by Winchester in Feb. 1894.
The first
"rimless" cartridge was produced in Dec. 1894 and was adopted by the U.S. Navy shortly
after 1895 for the 1895 straight pull bolt action military rifle made by Winchester.
Winchester, along with Remington and Blake Co., also made sporting rifles.
The U.S. Navy used the 236 Navy cartridge from 1895 to 1902 until it was discontinued for the
30-40 Crag cartridge in or around 1902.
Winchester and Remington continued loading this cartridge for the general public until 1935.
It was a cartridge "before it's time" due to the limited gun-powders of the day.
Now long obsolete for over 75 years and very hard to find.
We have a few available;  there are a lot of cartridges  in this caliber available with split-necked
cases, which is very common with this cartridge.
Our cartridges do not have split-necks!
