12 Gauge wads


#1

Does anybody collect shotshell components? Is there a web site?


#2

No idea if there is a site or if anyone collects just components. I have that box marked “11 (gauge) .200” Nitro Card". & although think it’s neat, don’t think it has much value.
Alcan was in business from 1951 to 1969 & was then purchased by S&W who used the name till 1971 according to Iverson -> The Shotshell in the United States (revised ed.)

I don’t collect them.
I used to have about 100 different boxes but I just sold them.

What is interesting you ? (I doubt you are interested by French ones!) :
empty boxes
or the components ?

I still have some empty boxes and the only funny French wad (Gabel ones).

All the other French wads (except a few designs) are just compressed soft material and not interesting.

Jean-Pierre, I just like to look at shotgun ammo boxes, they look cool (pleasing to my eye), I don’t care much what is inside.
