Welcome to the new and improved WSSM Zone. I have decided to change its name to Short Mag Zone Ltd., this way, this website can truly become a one-stop shop for finding information on any of the Short Magnum line of cartridges from: Winchester, Remington, and Ruger. The majority of the information on this site is still tailored towards the Winchester Super Short Magnum cartridges from Winchester, but I will be adding content for the other Short Magnum cartridges as well.
This website, and its predecessor, has a slightly storied past. The idea of the website dedicated to Winchester's Super Short Magnum line of cartridges was born out of love and, quite frankly, frustration. Back in 2005, before I purchased my first WSSM in 0.257, I was trying to dig up some good information on these new short fat speedsters. It was to my chagrin that any get unbiased information was hard to come by. One of the leading, at the time, websites dedicated to Winchester and Remington's Short Magnum cartridges shunned all of those who had an affinity towards the Super Shorts or just plain wanted to find out some information. Consequently, I decided to use my skills and create the first and only website dedicated to Winchester's Super Short Magnum cartridges.
Within the pages of this website, you will find information on each Short and Super Short cartridge including its history and ballistics, factory ammunition offerings, load data, an active forums, links, downloads and a member's gallery just to name a few. Therefore, I hope you enjoy your stay and are able to find all of the information you need to make an informed decision on these cartridges.
NOTE: The website is incomplete at this time, you'll notice that some of the pages come up blank. Please be patient as these pages will be updated as time permits. Thank you for your patience.
