I don't think Those CCI .38/.357 shotshells are discontinued.

They're not?
Last I checked, CCI quit makin em.
Maybe they started, again.
I think it was dumb they discontinued a good product, in the first place.

Well, here is PART of the odd stuff. Smallest is a 2mm, largest a 4 gauge shotshell.

Some are centerfire, rimfire, lipfire, pinfire, cupfire, inside primed centerfire (Benet primed). externally primed Burnside and Maynard rounds. Have 1 reproduction round of Crispin. Have 1 original air marshal's load (lead shot, in a cloth bag, 38 Special) AP, tracer, wood bullet, gas rounds, caseless, electrically primed, shot loads, multiball loads, blanks, paint marker, frangible bullets, plastic bullets, plastic cased cartridges.

Shotshells 4, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32 g. 410s. 9mm, and 6mm shotgun shells.

And I have not scratched the surface of what a SERIOUS collector gets in to!

Oh.my.God.
You have almost every type of cartridge I wish to collect! Btw, is the 14 gauge the shell for the martini Henry shotgun?
The electric primed is a remington etron x, isn't it?
I have seen wooden bullets. I remover reading online, some people said that German 8mm wooden bullets were a myth, yadda yadda, well at a local collectors show, there is this guy who collects nazi paraphernalia, and he has some of the real wooden bullet rounds. I had to make sure they were it, and they were the real deal!
I almost got my hands on some all plastic 12 gauge shells. I can't remember who made em, but they were discontinued and now are collectible. I know someone who had some, but whenever I ask em about it, they had shot em on a hunting trip. :l

Also, you wouldn't happen to have any of the 7.62x51 Israeli tear gas ammo, would you?

gunnut07 07-22-2013 11:00 PM

I've got some
280 Ross
308 Norma Mag
25-35
25-20
32-40

and a few others.

The only thing I consider weird that I own I still make ammo for and shoot. I am not aware of anyone that manufactures factory ammo for it anymore. That would be the 7-30 Waters. It is a Wildcat cartridge. It is a 30-30 case that is necked down to 7mm. It is fire formed with the 7mm bullet to push the neck forward to make room for more powder. Then it is sized again to make the final cartridge.

Wow! I did a Google search just too see if anyone makes it. Federal is making a 120 grain round. It is available online through Cabelas. It is $31.99 for 20 rounds!!!! Holy crap! It costs me about $.20 a round to make my own. That is $4 a box. I won't be buying it anytime soon!

No, the 14 g is an antique 14 g. Also have a Greener Police gun round (weird, 12 taper to 14 ) Electric primed is a 12 g Electaprime. All plastic 12 and 20 is Wando brand- translucent, see thru plastic. SOME of the wood bullets were military blanks, some were close range target loads. SOME used a hollow thin wood bullet to hold fine shot for a pistol.

Also have a few subcaliber training rounds- very small cartridge fired thru an adapter in a military firearm. 4mm Luger centerfire, special 9mm round fired in the AT-4 rocket launcher trainer, .297/230 Morris, etc. Then there is just flat strange stuff- .14 Alton Jones, the Colt 9.8mm Auto, .35 S&W Auto, .30 Pedersen, etc.
