I like the Eichhorn Gamelkarlby Express. (Spelling approximate for obvious reasons, I no longer have the magazine article.)

All I need is an investor to buy the barrel and send me a Savage action. I'll sell them the rifle for $1 when I'm done.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.

I've always had a soft spot for the .357 Bain & Davis. As a youngster, I was taken with the name simply because of it's name. My hearing has never been great, but I would have sworn I'd heard two guys discussin a cartridge called the .357 Bangin Davis. I thought, "Well that's certainly the round for me! If the guy that invented it (obviously Davis) thought the thing went 'bang' with enough authority to cause him to stick his name on it in such a way, well then yessir- that's exactly what I want!"

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

Just because of how it sounds

The "5.6x61mm Vom Hofe Super Express".

It is a more or less European version of the .220 Swift. I see no record of a 'non-Super' version, so one must assume the name is partially a fit of marketing enthusiasm.
