The 10 Best Selling Centerfire Rifle Cartridges in 2005

Compiled by Chuck Hawks


The following "averaged" list was compiled from various online and print sources, including the major ammo manufacturers' sales lists and the sales of RCBS reloading dies. The various sources tend to parallel each other, with certain exceptions.

The .222 Remington, .30 Carbine and .303 British rank in the top 10 on certain individual lists, but not the others. Anyway, here are the averaged results based on the data that I could find. Consider it approximate.

  1. .30-06 Springfield
  2. .223 Remington
  3. .270 Winchester
  4. .30-30 Winchester
  5. .308 Winchester
  6. .243 Winchester
  7. 7mm Remington Magnum
  8. .300 Winchester Magnum
  9. .22-250 Remington
  10. .338 Winchester Magnum
