Interesting advertisements from 1893
A) First we discover Beaugrand-Netré is the successor of E.Lecomte
Then we discover their ammo for short range reductor tubes of all caibers:
- 4 different charges with black powder (see picture).
N°1 is to shoot up to 25 meters
N°2 is to shoot up to 40 meters
N°3 is to shoot up to 65 meters
N4 is up to shoot to 100 meters°
- round lead bullet
3)pointed constricted lead bullets (see picture “comprimée)
- wadd cutter constricted lead bullet (see picture “comprimée molettée”)”
Then we see they have ammo for the new short range adaptor device for Gras riffle.
The only charge available (N°3) uses smokeless powder and the the bullet is wadd cutter constricted lead bullet.
Also ammo for two other guns : french reglementary revolver n°1 and Smith & Wesson(this one using a special bullet)
They also sell short range adaptors for Gras riffle :
- in brass
- in brass and steel
- all steel
And short range adaptors in brass for french reglementary revolver with their ctges
They sell 6 mm flobert ctges with round bullet,
And 6 mm Bosquette ctges with pointed bullet with 3 different designs:
EL (this is for E.Lecomte) (see picture)
P (I don’t know, I don’t have time to seach in my files) (see picture)
BN (this is for Beaugrand Netre)which is the most accurate (see picture)
For each of these 6 mm ctges (Flobert and bosquette) you can choose the diameter (N°1 for new guns) and N°2 (for used guns with a wider chamber)
Last thing : they can manufacture any kind of constricted lead bullet with an accuracy of 1/1000 of mm
B) An add for Henri Rychner in Aarau in switzerland;
They mnufacture cases, primers, lead bullets and reloading tools in 7.5 mm for Martini carbines
C) Last advertisement : Why not to take a small pill of cocaine if you have a throat ache ??
