René, nice selection, thanks for sharing. I like the Argentine one!

Hi Fede,

Was just thinking that almost everything I see on the forum is metallic/military.
I think it is time to put in some other stuff, perhaps other collectors of shotshells can also show some of their goodies.

Many regards rené

While my interest is military metallics, it is GREAT to see posts showing OTHER AREAS of interest in the cartridge collecting community.

Very interesting shot shells.

Thank you for sharing them with us and please post more.

Yes Rene, some great items there. Below two I like from my drawers.
Top headstamp is the birds & the HB has IMPEREABLE impressed in the coiled brass outer reinforcing.

Pete,

Does that look like a woodpecker?

The brass wrapped shell is also interesting.

Impereable? Is of course “impermeable”. (Don’t even try to pronounciate that unless you have a high degree in French…). It simply means watertight.

Hi Pete,

Very nice ones, specially the Gaupillat one.
The Henry Barthe I have also in my collection.

Thanks for sharing.

We really need a like button! I really like to look at the different types of shot shells but do not have anything worth saying,


#13

Thanks for bringing this topic back, so people can have a look at them again.

regards rené

Very pretty cartridges. Fascinating how the cal. 16 shell looks almost as if it is made of figured walnut!


#15

This for me, too :)

You can find the same looks on central fire shells.
Indeed they are great to look at.
It is the only one I ever found in pin fire.

You are lucky to have them, and we’re lucky for getting to see them.
Thanks for sharing your great photos.
Generally speaking, I am not very into pinfire and rimfire cartridges aside of certain manufacture .22 LR,
but threads like these always make me think I am missing out on a great field of collecting, with many beautifully made cartridges to be found.
