    Hello gentlemen,

    I have an ammo collection of about 50-60 various rounds and I would like to add to it, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in helping if you have any spare rounds that I could purchase. :supergrin:

    I have a nice collection of 9mm and .45 TulAmmo, Federal and Winchester White Box... What's your offer?

    I have some limited edition Winchester 555 .22LR that I might be willing to part with if the price is right. Won't take anything less than 4¢.

    You just trying to collect different cartridges of the world, or are you stocking up on shooting ammo?

    If it's the former, a wish list might help.

    Do you have them displayed and labeled? That would be interesting to see. Pics?

    I do the same thing with a twist, I add cartridges to my collection only if I have shot the cartridge. I have a few that I have not had experience with, they don't get displayed. Just my weirdness.

    Nothing wrong with straight collecting at all, it is cool to see the big collections with all of the bizarre cartridges and the old cartridges.

    Good luck!

    Nicely displayed on two or three shadow boxes but not labeled.

    Would it help if I did make a wishlist of what I am after?

    I have an extensive collection of cartridges. I just have them displayed on top of my large roll-top desk. I got most of them from ammo-one.com

    Good luck

    I tried collecting for a time. Right now everything is in storage because I don't want to display anything where I am.

    As far as a wish list.
    I was collecting what I shot.
    Then, I wanted USA or groups that fought against the USA. (i.e. 45ACM vs. 9mm comparison)
    At this point if someone was generous, I think I would want different hunting ammo. (Then I could compare 7mm vs 7mm mag vs 7x57 vs 7mm-08 vs. 7mm WSM vs......)
