    Default weird briefcase discovered found in a little river...

    well I had been at the area before and never noticed this briefcase. Assuming it was empty I got a stick and dragged it towards me, damn thing was really heavy, here is the result and the contents. Should I go to the police?

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    It's not illegal to hold shotgun cartridges without a certificate under U.K. law. I suggest you dispose of them responsibly or bury them as they are good for nothing else.

    Correct Gooney, they're a mixture of Game Bore, Winchester and an odd Eley 12 bore cartridges. As far as involving the Fed's, it's up to you, I personally wouldn't bother.
