Metallic Cartridges by Cheddite


#1

I recently learned that Cheddite, well known for their shotshells, now produces metallic cartridges. The link will take you to their listing which includes 9x21mm, 45 ACP, 40 S&W, 380, 38 Special and 357 Mag. These apparently have Cheddite headstamps-at least the 9x21mm.

Though not listed on their website, I am told that at the IWA show their display listed 9x19mm as a cartridge they produce.

I have also been told that the cases may be made at the Gevelot plant in France which Cheddite bought in the 1980s.

I have asked around and nobody I’ve spoken to has seen cartridges with the Cheddite headstamp.

Can anyone shed light on this? Has anyone seen Cheddite ammunition for sale.

Cheers,

Lew

I have some 9 x 21 mm and 40 S&W cases with the cheddite hds .They are nickeled and were loaded with nickeled primer & bullet

The 9 mm Para cartridge is illegal here , if used in auto pistols and if loaded with a jacketed or semi jacketed bullet , so I am not surprised that there’s no 9 mm Para load in their product list . There’s a very little market for this cartridge here , even if the “platinum” bullet is a nickel washed lead one , not a FMJ

This is a 9 x 21 mm hds selection .You can see the Cheddite one

PS : Lew, there are also some “proprietary” 9 mm Para loads in Italy ( lead bullet) . Cases made by other factories but with the proprietary hds : LCM , APG , NTW
