3-Ten shotshells


#1

Must have been a real small operation if they handwrote the lot number!!!

Thats neat, first time I’ve saw any of those. Anybody have any more info on the subject?

Thanks Vlad! I have several of these cartridges but I had not seen the package before. The last I knew they were trying to market a carbine system based on the M4 and which used .45Winmag shells. They offered the bulleted variant as one of the loads for it:

Thats for that - I thought that one had died.

Tony - It probably has died, but I’m not sure. I don’t think the website has been updated in at least 3 years. Who knows.


#6

The last internet archive entry on this site was on february 2005 (the first was december 2003). I’d go for “dead”.

They look incredibly messy to manufacture which may have contributed to their lack of sucess. Apart from a snake load for what purpose would they have been intended?


#8

Thanks, that’s what I thought. I did put the .45 Win Mag into Jane’s Ammunition Handbook on the basis of that neat little 3-Ten carbine (I like to find a good excuse to put in an interesting range of ammo), but I’ve archived it this year.

I just sent them an email with a link to this page asking for more information .
It will be interesting to see if some one responds.
