This Cartridge of the week was mentioned in another post so I researched it and thought it would be a good one to make the list.

The 2.7 Kolibri is the smallest factory produced centerfire cartridge ever made. Introduced in 1914 it was chambered in two different guns. One a semi-auto of blow back design and the other a single shot pistol of the commonly called "parlor type"  The bullet only has approximately 650 to 700 fps muzzle velocity and a WHOPPING 3 foot pounds of energy at the muzzle. Considering the bullet only weighs 3 grains and is .105 to .108 inches in diameter, you could not expect much more from it. For a contrast it makes our .25 acp look like a magnum because the 25 acp has 73 foot pounds of energy at the muzzle.  Can you imagine trying to reload one of these rounds??? I reload the 25 acp and I have a little pair of tweezers that I have bent in a half circle on each side to hold the little .25 dia. bullet because my fingers are to big and get in the way when I try to run the press ram up. There are no statistics on what type or size of animal this cartridge would be suitable for hunting but my guess would be a very small mouse or perhaps a large cockroach.

Hey, Gun,
   Just as an aside, to the word "Kolibri", when I was serving as a soldier in Germany, in 1961-62, (Hq & Hq, 3rd Armored Cav. Reg't.), there was a "Gast Haus" (Guest House, or Bar--) that had a Mural on the wall, which said, "Mit Kolibri auf der Welt"! (With peace throughout the world--) It showed a white dove of peace with an olive branch in it's beak-- I am fluent in German, but had never run across the word "Kolibri" before, so I asked the owner what it meant! He said it was an old German expression meaning, "Peace"! Well, I guess the 2.7 Kolibri is a pretty "peaceful" round, at that!!!
Cheers,
Fred (Honcho)
