Gang,

I've gotten a hold of junk box that had alot of interesting cartridges.

Like Colt 1911 .45 ammo (two rounds) made in 1918 (yes GI stuff.)

Several .45 steal case WW 2 rounds.

Old .38/40, .44-40, .41 LC, and somve very long rounds.

One says .43 on the case head (.43 Ejyption?)
A W.R.A. Co. 40-82 WCF
An old WRA .45/70
And interesting a paper patched bullet with a sort of rebated rim and the inscription
A
98 G
S

So where do I go to look these up? Is there a cartridge collection board?

Thanks,

Deaf

One of the best books for beginning collectors is Cartridges of the World. This book has to scale photos of each cartridge along with a brief history. Chapters include: Rimfire, sport handgun, military handgun, sport/military rifle, British/European rifle, black powder, Patent cartridges, shotshell and even Wildcat cartridges.

Thanks,

One of the rounds is a silver kind of case, has a head stamp of

F

1 91
5

It looks like a 45/70. I think (maybe) it was made in 1891!

I'll check the boards.

thanks again.
