History of the 22-3000 Griffin & Howe R2 cartridge:
The R-2 Lovell was an unusual development because it is an example of a wildcat cartridge developed from another wildcat cartridge.
It is believed to have been developed in 1937 by Harvey Donaldson from New York.
It derived its name from the fact that the second chambering reamer (made by M.S. Risley of Earlville, NY) and appeared to be correct in providing what the designer  was striving to produce. It is actually an improved or blown out version of the original 22 Lovell or 22-3000 developed by Harvey Lovell about 1934.
Both are based on the obsolete 25-20 Single Shot case necked down, itself a wildcat when it first appeared in 1882.
The R-2 was so popular that the late J. Bushnell Smith of Middlebury, Vermont and Griffen & Howe of New York City custom loaded ammunition, when the supply of 25-20 Single-Shot cases was exhausted. Griffen & Howe arranged for the manufacture of  R-2 cases.
These are specimens are made from those cases.
