Hi all

Thanks for the info - as a relative newbie to shotguns I've enjoyed reading the posts about the 'old' cartridges!

 

Be careful, if you start collecting its hard to stop haha

Not wishing to steal the thread & it probably sounds a daft question but how do you get into cartridge collecting as its something I could see myself doing. But I never see old cartridges up for sale & you cant advertise them on social media sites etc. Just wondering how collectors manage to start and how they locate the older cartridges to collect

Older gun shops are a good place to ask, there are loads still about. 

I was given two crimped paper case Eley grand prix from a local shop after expressing an interest and it all started from there. 

If you go back a couple pages there's a long thread re cartridge collecting, you have also have  the UKCC ( United Kingdom Cartridge Club) we meet through the year and there are literally 1000's up for sale and swap.

I gave most of my old collection to the local ground for their display case. I then see them most Sunday's, far more often than I ever saw them, when they were in my possession.

Thanks I will look up the thread now. Has the uk cartridge club got a website or a social media page I could follow?

No, it's a bit more old school than that, they send out a paper journal 3/4 times a year, I can dig out the details for joining and pm if you like, it's only something like £15 year.

:lol: S+B catridges and Baikals were collectively known as "****-n-Booms" around my way when I was a lad. You could guarantee a **** and a BOOM in every box !

The censor got me .. 'an expulsion of nether-end gasses' should get by ;)

I can accept this with regard to S&B’s as I found them horrendous, but I fired thousands of effective Baikals at pigeon and game during the 70’s and never had a squib/misfire.........yes, I am now nearly deaf.
