Just starting with cartridge collecting. Interested in seeing some of your guys' favorite or rarest cartridges!

Thanks Pete, first hand information is priceless.



Hi sksvlad!

During second world war, Sweden were in need of incendiary ammunition for both air and land use. Several constructions were developed in country but none were considered to fulfill the needs. Several tests were conducted with designs from abroad, were of one is the German B patrone. Finally, the best offer were a Hungarian produced projectile. Sweden bought 1 -10 million projectiles manufactured by
Factory A.-G. Jagdpatronen Zundhutshen und Metallwarenfabrik, Budapest, Hungary.

The projectiles is in the caliber 7,92, and were loaded in Sweden as 8x63. It was distributed only to the airforce. There is maybe a handful left today.

Unusual .577 Nitro Express new case, with the date on the headstamp. Perhaps the first one they made?

And my favorite, another .577 NE case to commemorate the closing of B.E.L.L.
