I don't think we've done this before, at least as far I can remember:

If you want, post a pic of the cartridges you shoot. Or your favorite cartridge. Factory or handload. Even post up your handloading table. No guns, though. Just that stuff that goes through them.

Here's my rifle cartridges. All mine are pretty run of the mill.

L to R: .45-70 Gov't, .44 Rem Mag, .35 Rem, .30-06 Sprgfld, .308 Win, .30-30 WCF, .270 WCF, 6.5x55 Swede, .223 Rem, .22 Rimfire

And my handgun cartridges:

L to R: .45 ACP, .44 Rem Mag, 10mm, .357 Rem Mag, .38 Spcl, .38 Super, 9mm, .22 Rimfire

I'll glad to be back in the .270 and .38 Super game.

I'm getting old and senile. I pulled it out of a Remington box.

What's the story with these? Is that factory ammo?


I remember the Accelerator rounds. I had some in .30-06 and .30-30. I never had a use for them other than to just have some and I shot them up and never bought any more. Like the early PMC Ultramag .38 Special rounds I had that are collector rounds today. I just shot those up. Frown Now there are no more to be had.

Fair enough, but most of those pictures are gone. And now you have a fresh .45-70 next to a .35 Remington picture. Smile

All factory ammo except for the 45 ACP on the far left that was a commercially reloaded round.

Left to right:
45 ACP, bulged case (not too unusual)
40 S&W Blazer aluminum, no extractor groove
357 SIG (x2) Winchester Ranger SXT, deformed cases
9mm Luger Blazer aluminum, deformed bullet

I should redo that photo which appears somewhat out of focus.

One for the cartridge experts. Found in the Leadville, Colorado, area.

30 US and it's rimmed, so I am guessing a.30-40 Krag.

Agreed. Almost certainly 30-40 Krag, aka 30 US.

Yes. I found some photos of exactly the same headstamp.

Here's one, the biggest live round I ever owned. It's off the Liberty Ship John Morgan, sunk in 90 feet of water off Virginia Beach in 1943. It was loaded with lend Lease materials. This is a 37mm M17 anti-tank round. It came up with a very corroded solid (I think) warhead that had to be removed. The powder was just mush. Nevertheless, it's still got a live, but likely very inert, primer. This is well after I cleaned all the sea-crust off of it. Next to a .30-06 round.

A couple of more foundlings.



All I can make out on this headstamp are 6 on the left and 84 on the right.




And a couple more not too common. (No guns, just the cartridges).



Wildcat cartridge: .14 caliber bullet in necked-down 7.65mm case. (124 grain Gold Dot 9mm Luger for comparison.)
