Rifle Cartridge Collecting

Discussion in 'Caliber Corner' started by Deaf Smith, Sep 17, 2012.

  1. 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
    98 G

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

    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.

  3. Thanks,

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


    1 91

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

    I'll check the boards.

    thanks again.
