WHIPgroup successfully argued two applications before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and obtained favorable decisions reversing written description and obviousness rejections. Both applications relate to a novel firearm cartridge that is designed to be fired by a center fire pistol and achieve ballistics resembling that of a rifle carbine. In its appeal briefs, WHIPgroup asserted that the drawings satisfied the written description requirement and that the single prior art reference failed to teach several features of the claimed invention.  The Board agreed with WHIPgroup, finding legitimate arguments against the rejections were raised.  A Notice of Allowance is expected for each application upon entering minor claim amendments.
