Shotshell identification


#1

Who made these shotshells?



Top row, second from left
Sans Fuite 12 12 De Gaz ( no gas leak)


#2

the Special Smokeless is British
the SUPER 6 is Australian, & the one with the spades is Swiss
The Diana is - Society Anonyme, Brussels

The PD, since it has my initials should be mine. I’ll pick it up at SLICS, & please be sure to bring it. Otherwise I can’t help with it.

HI JP,

are you sure about the 121212* made by cheddite france!
In my opinion it is a different * that is used.
I have only seen this type on the SUPER marked shells from Australia.
ABout the PD ( Dulleart ) it is indeed a Dutch company that these are made for!
But I do not know who MADE them.

HI rené

  1. You are right the stars shown have 6 peaks.
    Cheddite ones have only 5 peaks.
    sorry, my vision is not as good as before !

  2. About the 12 PD 12 Success Fa. Dullaert’s Groothandel (Netherland)
    I know only for who they are made but do not know either who made the cases or perhaps even load them.

If you count only as ctges manufacturers the companies who made really the ctges (and not only load them) there were only a few before WWII and even less after WWII. And now only about 4 or 5 only.
This would give a too short listing and too difficult to establish who really made the shell.
