Shotshells from Egypt


#1

Hi EOD.

As promised.
Here are some pictures of shells made by or for Egypt.

The headstamps with chalk have small differences in writing.
I have no idea if it is important difference or just different bunters being used.

The left and the middle one are made by Sellier & Bellot
the right one is from Italian origin.

And here is a nice box!
Perhaps somebody can translate the wording on the box??




When anybody has more info one these shells or other shells and boxes from Egypt I would really like to see them.

Many regards rené

Rene, great images! Thank you very much for sharing these!

Did you ever see something Egypt that you would consider police or military ammunition?

Hi EOD,

I know of the greener shells with the arab style headstamps, but nothing else.

Regards rené

Rene, I remember the Greeners from a related thread we had here before. I just wondered if LE in Egypt somewhen switched to the normal 12GA for better availability of special loads which must also be cheaper than the specially made Greeners.

HI EOD,
here are some others from Egypt.


The headstamps shown are from the blue ones on the far right of the picture.
The Maratos is the same as Pete showed in the earlier post.
