Photos of ammunition needed for Wikipedia


#1

Hi Gentleman,

I am a passionate Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page ) user and contributor and I am currently on the hunt for photos of cartridges needed for Wikipedia. I thought if anyone can help me out it is you guys!

Wikipedia is a free (free to access, free to reproduce, free to modify) encyclopedia that is written collaboratively by 10’s of 1000’s of people. It is a massive resource for firearms and ammunition information. Currently there are articles about nearly 400 different cartridges ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Pistol_and_rifle_cartridges )

The list of cartridges that lack a photo on Wikipedia is below.

If you can provide me with a photo I will do all the work needed to get the photo(s) onto Wikipedia. The photos do not have to be “perfect”. Any will do. A common cartridge in the photo for scale is a bonus ( For example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.308 )

The photos must be taken by you. Photos found on the internet are not allowed on Wikipedia. I do need the following text from you

“I [your name] hereby license the attached photo(s), which are my own work, under the CC Attribution-Share Alike 3.0.”

You will still retain the copyright and ownership of the image but you will be allowing people to use the image if they attribute you as the author. A simple non technical explanation of the Creative Commons 3.0 is here: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/.

If you are willing to contribute a photo please email me the photo and the above “legal” text (I cannot use the photo otherwise). My email address is on this page:

The list of cartridges:

UPDATE: I received a photo for every cartridge on the list :) Thanks so much guys.

I will update the list and remove any cartridges if I receive a photo.

Many thanks.

Thank you Pivi for helping out.

Steve- At risk of sounding self-serving, I would urge you to add a link to the International Ammunition Association (CartridgeCollectors.org) in as many of the above topics as possible.

Not to promote IAA as much as to provide a very useful resource that may help people wanting to learn more than can be included in a wiki entry.

Pictures of the 300 WSM,264 Winchester magnum and 225 Winchester sent.
I have other cartridges listed in Steve’s list but only as empty cases,please help him especially with the small caliber wildcats

Hi Guys,

I have seen links to cartridgecollectors.org on Wikipedia.

I have no personal agenda. I put a lot of my time into Wikipedia. I donate annually. Wikipedia is non-profit and has no advertisements, it is run purely by donations. All information on Wikipedia is free (free as in free beer and free as in freedom: Anyone can do with it is as they wish.).

I have no doubt Wikipedia will outlive us all and will probably exist on the internet as long as the internet exists and in printed form for much longer.

On the English version alone there are nearly 2.7 million articles which were collaboratively written by over 8 million people. And that is just the English version!

As you can see I have very passionate! I encourage you to spend some time on Wikipedia. The wealth of information is astounding!

It is not trying to compete or replace cartridgecollectors.org / IAA , it is just an encyclopedia trying to be the sum of all human knowledge.

Please I encourage you to contribute photos. Feel free to email or private message me if you have any concerns.

THIS WIKI ENTRY SHOULD HAVE ALL SORTS OF AMMO PHOTOS NOT JUST WORDS.

SteveO,
Do you still need 7-30 Waters?

If yes, what do you want me to put next to it for comparison?

I sure do! Maybe a 30-30 if you have one available? Or .308 Win., anything common.

Thanks very much :)
