An interesting few finds from a Victorian rifle range

Article about: so they don't re-detect them next time. I do the same with modern trash and shotgun shells. Dig them out then bury them all in one spot.

    Nice little haul there. This is the exact same stuff I first started coming back with from my site. You have a pretty intact 'bell end' from a Mills. Are those 9mm's or .45s? Wheres the base nuts???

    Bottoms sure look like .45s the two big ones at the top look like some I find at my site, .380. Look the same at least.

    Love the round that wouldn't play ball... lovely

    Thanks Dave,no wonder they were happy to leave that one there.There is some other letters on the headstamp ending 'A',but its too badly scored.At what point do you think the firer gave up and realised this one just wasnt going in?

    They aren't 9mm cases CB as they look like they're rimmed. 9mm were rimless. The one on the far right looks like a 9mm, (45s were invariably stamped 45ACP or Western), and the other three appear to be .380 cals.

    PS The 303 you have IDd as 8IVZ is actually 'B' IV Z. If you check back on the information PB and me gave you on 303s, you'll see what this meant !

    (I'd tell you myself but you'll never learn if I do )

    The 'Z' denotes nitrocellulose fill.
