Robun shotshell


#1

I got this shotshell, but I need information about it, soo who made it and when?



Any information is welcome. The Normal powder could indicate it is British or Swedish, but the British Normal powder compagny ceased around 1920, and the Swedish Normal cartridges look different soo ???

m89, I think it should read “Robijn” as the “IJ” is some sort of Symbol.
As per this spelling it sounds very Dutch.

Hi,

These are made by the NIKA company.
Nederlandse Industrie voor Kunststoffen Ammunitie
Company address was:
F.A.M. Valkenburg
Willem2 straat 58
Tilburg
the Netherlands

They produced them also in all green and yellow cases, but these are much harder to find ( almost impossible )

made in 12 and 16 Ga
not sure about 20 Ga.

regards rené
