    .33 BSA N.E

    A very short lived N.E round that was once considered by the Brits as a military round in .26, .33 and the lesser or rarer .40 BSA round.



    I think they were in production for only a very short period 1921 - 1923 (AFAIK) with as far as munition production goes, this being a full packet of Kynoch .33 BSA with 10 rounds it was not a very ballistically efficient round.
    This is probably a jewel of my collection of packeted ammo being so rare and in pristine condition, I do have a single in the N.E collection I'll find a pic of it and post but this is something not often seen at the time of purchase there were 2 packets offered up but I could only afford one at that juncture.
    .33 is the middle one of the 5 N.E's not sure the paper patched maybe a 500/450. (Not the best pic but its all I could find)

    Super 303/25

    Black 303/25 Super full packet got these a while ago I am pretty o-fare with the different types of Super packaging colours but will be honest I have not seen the just plain black/white as pictured perhaps some of the Aussie shooters here can shed light on whether they have seen this colour scheme in their travels.

    .17 Fred Flinstone

    .17/22.250 "Fred Flinstone" think this supposed wildcat is a bit of a figment as I can find no reference to it still something totally different.

    7mm x 61mm S&H

    Nice RCS.
    I've got a Schuler think its either equal to the 404 Jefferies or the 505 Gibbs I'll have to see if I have a 404 I've got the Gibbs, I'll post up a Nimrod soon, but here is another metric a 7 x 61 Sharpe & Hart I always include a 303 round as usual for scale as most here know the size of the 3 oh.

    Very early small bore black powder cartridges

    From the 1890's into the 1900's, gunsmiths, barrel makers and target shooters and even small game hunters were working on the small bore cartridges

    Left: 22 WCF center fire WRA Co, 25-20 UMC, 22-3000 G&H formed from 25-20 and smokeless,

    25-21 Peters, 25-25 WRA Co and last is 28-30-120.


    I understand that the 28-30-120 is becoming popular again because of the quality 7mm barrels that are available
