You should add Delaware Cartridge Company.
Also there are NPK Japanese brass shells that are more modern and Alcan Incorporated.

thanks Garry

  1. Have you a Delaware Cartridge Company catalogur ?

  2. About Alcan it is not a manufacturer (at least for 8 gauge).
    This company was subcontracting the cases.

Sorry but I do not have a Delaware Cartridge Co. catalog. I once owned the shell but it is seldom seen.

ALCAN was a US Distributor, which sourced most of its items (Shellcases,wads and various Primers) from Giulio Fiocchi, Lecco in the 1950s and 1960s.

Were the Alcan 8 Gauge cases aluminium or brass???
