History of the .22 Tuba Cartridges:  These cartridges started out as a joke or novelty, but they are now a working
cartridge The two different 22 Tuba cartridges were designed, produced and have been fired in a special firearm by
Zachary Weighman, a highly respected cartridge collector and wild-cater. With the idea that these funnel shaped
cartridges will force all the powder to be burn and vaporized long before they reach the rifling.
The idea of a shorten larger diameter case necked down to a small bore or so called Super Short Magnums and Short
magnum caught fast on in the early 2000's in the rifle category with Winchester stealing the idea from Lazzeroni with
3 WSSM and 4 WSM cartridges and Remington following with there own Short Magnum cartridges.
