History of the .55 Boys Anti Tank Cartridge:
It became evident in World War I that tanks were goingto be a big problem and so it was decided that "Anti Tank Guns" were needed to stop the big metal monsters.
The first anti-tank cartridge was the 13.2x92mm for the Mauser style bolt action, Abwehr Gewehr M1918 Rifle, during World War I.
The 55 Boys "Anti Tank" Rifle was developed by the Assistant Superintendent of Design for the British Small Arms Committee, Captain H.C. Boys and was named in his honor after he died in 1937, just before the rifle was put into service for the United Kingdom.
It became obvious in the early part of World War II that the "Anti-Tank" rifle era was going to be short lived, due to the weight and manpower needed to use it on the battlefield. As soon as World War II was underway "Anti-Tank" rifles were replaced with rocket powered devices.
This is one of the largest "belted" cartridge that was ever produced; Only made by Kynoch and RG (Royal Ordnance) the .55 Boys or 13.9x99mm is a huge cartridge
with a (over 900 grain) steel armor piecing projectile that can penetrate
up to 3/4 inch (20 mm)of armour plate steel at 100 yards. Long Obsolete
