Agreed.

Here's some .22 shorts. The two on the right have to be Rem-UMC, but I have no idea what the two on the left are.



*Maybe the A is American Cartridge Company and the R is Robin Hood Ammunition Company?



Now this thing is cool. First one I've seen in person. Federal American Eagle 12ga sales sample cutaway.







Same goes for this. Winchester Repeater 12ga slug... with a rubber insert between the crimp and the slug. In really good shape too. I haven't been able to find any info on this cartridge.

Good on the American Cartridge Company round.

I'm going to go with the Revelation brand, from Western Auto Stores. I have some of those in .22LR, but not the Short, with the same knurled bullet cannelure.

Great shotshell rounds! I really like the window shells. Wish I had a bunch of them, but I only have a few, probably less than 5. They always fascinated me.

I went through my collection today to see exactly what I had. I have 121 small arms cases, rifle, pistol and rimfire. I guess a modest collection by some but I've been picking up cases on and off since 1964. Many are loaded rounds and about 1/4 are fired cases. I have a few odd ball items and one or two cases I haven't identified. I've been fortunate in that I'm the range chairman for the local free rifle/pistol/shotgun/archery ranges and have access to the empty brass. It's is amazing how many live rounds are thrown away, many .22rimfire rounds but quite a few centerfire.

The first rounds I ever picked up at an abandoned range outside Albuquerque were two 45-70 Government cases and one 50-70 Government case. These are very old loaded rounds and most likely contain black powder. These are the three cases that got me started.

I'm thinking of making a display case similar to the posters you can buy to display them.

You should make a display.

I started the same way you did, back in 1962, when I found some fired cases in a field behind our duplex in Cheyenne, Wyoming, except these were .30-06 cases, pre-WWI.

Take some pics of the oddball rounds and post them here, we'll see if we can come up with an ID.

I bought them because a friend has a walther ppk his father brought back from ww2, the 45 rimfire is pretty cool.
Those are an early type of centerfire cartridge that have the primer inside the balloon head case. The crimps just above the rim hold the primer assembly in place. One of the early steps towards centerfire ammo as we know it today.

My oddball rounds in my cartridge collection

Left to right
Head stamp is WRA 5 5

The second item head stamp is 9mm 06 and what looks like YVI. I have no idea what it is. The plastic end is hollow.

The third item is an odd shaped bullet. The base has a small hole about 1/16" deep and the lead tip is a cylinder with a tip sort of like an Eley Match bullet.

The fourth item is a bottle necked rimfire case head stamp A. Too big to be a 17 HM2 and too small to be a 17 HMR. I now believe this is a 5mm Remington Case

The 5th item is a blank and I guess could be a .22 LR blank. The rim diameter seems a bit small for a .22LR. The head stamp is a U.

The far right item is a 17HM2 for reference.

Does anyone have any idea what any of these are. BTW, a friend gave me an old 44-77 Sharps loaded round today. Again I'm sure it loaded with black powder.

Daisy VL

Our local gun shop recently sold a Daisy VL deluxe rifle in the leather case for $500. The price included a brick (500 rds) of ammo. The collector market for these guns is pretty small as it took the shop several months to find a buyer. One of the major problems with this setup was that there is no way to extract a cartridge if it failed to fire except for using a cleaning rod!

Has anyone posted a 58 rim fire as used in the Allin trapdoor conversions. It is also called 58/60 US.

I passed up a rifle due to cost and considering it would be a wall hangar / safe queen due to ammo.

It might interest others and I would appreciate it. A drawing would be nice too. I dont actually need either. You know need vs want.

Cartridge Collection Display

For many many years I wanted to build a display box for my cartridge collection. Finally after 55 years of collecting I spent the last 3 day building the case, drilling holes and mounting the cartridges and applying the labels. The case was made from some old 1 1/4 inch pine flooring that I planed flat and to 3/4 inch thick. The back is some old 1/4 inch Oak plywood I had. The only cost was $16.00 for a pack of 1/2 x 1 3/4 inch ink jet labels of which I only used 120 and a can of spray lacquer.

I sort of combined the cartridges in an odd way. First old straight old wall cartridges, then belted magnums, bottle necked, rimmed, pistol and then rimfires. Within each group I did try to go by caliber. Oh well. Cartridge # 2,3,4 and 5 from the upper left are very old, most likely loaded with black powder. A 50-90, (2) 45-70s and a 44-77 Sharpe's.
