These are the new ones 38 g only in 3s brought out about 18 months ago ( lead ) 

Clear white case's and deep brass ??? If so a good friend who now lives in Scotland shot plenty of Geese with them last season 👍

The original "maximum" was a 34g gram load. Use to be the heaviest cartridge you could put through a 2.5" sxs. Great cartridge. 

Very popular cartridge in ireland for roughshooting. No7 Maximum was a killer in the first barrel for pheasants/woodcock. Still a few boxes to be got here and there.
