Cartridge of the Month - Archive

For the current Cartridges of the Month visit us here: http://cartridgecollectors.org/?page=cartridge-of-the-month


Learning about cartridges can be done several ways.

WARNING-
Disassembly or "sectioning" of ammunition requires considerable skill, a thorough understanding of the exact nature of the cartridge to be worked on, strict observance of all applicable safety precautions, along with patience and good judgment.

The IAA STRONGLY recommends that individuals not attempt to section or otherwise disassemble any ammunition. Leave that to the professionals. We recently heard of an individual attempting to section a cartridge which resulted in an accident which cost him several fingers and nearly his eyesight and life.

DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!

The IAA Journal often has photos of sectioned cartridges, but here you can see the details better in larger color images.

Each month we will add another Cartridge of the Month. In addition to a photos we will include some brief notes for identification of the cartridge and any special features. Each month's feature will open as a new page.
