He is Rick Jameson.
Some years ago I was reading his reloading column in Shooting Times mag. He was at that time writing about cartridges (made from cut-down 404 Jeffries brass I think). This must have been around 2000.
Later in 2002 or 2003 both Winchester and Remmy came out with their own "short mags" and Jameson sued and won. As a result of the judgement, Winchester closed its' doors and both win and Remmy were eventually sold to other company s with deeper pockets.
The shooting community judged Jameson as greedy so he lost his ST writing column and also his brass company.
And this is the short version!
I think the point that the court missed is that rifle makers have been chambering each others' cartridges for 100 years. .308 Rem vs .243 Win. And the list continues...
