Stevens Arms and Tool Company of Chicopee, Massachusetts.The cartridge was designed by Charles H. Herrick of Winchester (the town not the company), Massachusetts.The cartridge designation of 22-15-60 refers to 22 caliber (.22” diameter) – 15 grains FFFFg or FFFg. black powder and 60 grain lead bullet.This cartridge was a great improvement (back in the day) over the Winchester 22 WCF cartridge and used for some game and varmint hunting.Both Winchester (using the W.R.A. head-stamp) and Union Metallic Company (using the  U.M.C. head-stamp) and possibly Remington produced this cartridge.The Stevens organization worked with men who today would be called “wild-catters” to make rifles for cartridges of someone else’s design. Examples are the .22-15-60, .25-20 Single Shot, .25-21, .25-25, .28-30, .32 Ideal, .32-35, .38-35 and .38-45, many given a Stevens name.
