While I must say that a cartridge collection is a nice way to start, how do you propose to buy live cartridges for your collection, given the worlds strictest gun rules in India ?
We have a valid arms liscence then, why I can't collect live cartridges. And in future I will try to own our dbbl on heirloom basis.
You can try different dealers for a nice collection..

Thanks for posting this -- very interesting!

I have some Very old 40,50 12 gauge cartridges.2,3 cartridges have different kind of powder.When i shake one of these cartridge
i can hear sound of powder like we hear powder sound in rifle cartridge.Maybe they have black powder.Markings on these 2,3 cartridges
have worn out completely because of old age. Rest of them are in OK shape. I think these were made for Large Games
I would have loved to share pics of old ammo with my fellow members but i have packed them very tightly in lots of buuble wraps,white foam
and tape and it is stored between heavy cloths in a big trunk to save them from moisturizer.I had pictures of these if finds them i will upload t.
