    My Collection

    Guys, Im a rookie at collecting but I have started a collection of fired cases and cartridges. I just completed a trade with Gandog56 ( Thanks my Friend) for a few cases. This is a picture of the display that I built to hold my collection.





    This is my trade with Gandog56.




    You can find my thread about my collection on the castboolits site under "our town" with a list on my cases. If any of you have anything that I do not have I would be interested in trading with you. I will welcome donations or I will gladly trade brass with you with the trade slanted in your favor.

    Thanks! Just something that I wanted to do but never had the time for until I retired.

    Can you provide a link to your thread over on Cast Boolits? I didn't see it on the first 3 pages of threads. I might have a case or two you can use.

    Crapola, I took the Lee Enfields out, but none of the reloads I shot were the odd brands. What can I say, have to shoot the oldest stuff first. Lot of PPU, a WW Super. I had a bag of some oddball stuff I never shot, just picked up at the range, but I don't remember anything too odd there, either. Do you have any 7.62 Nagant cases?

    Found the thread and looked at your list of cartridges that you already have. I don't have a single case that you don't already have.

    Thanks for looking. I appreciate you interest and effort! Going to hit a Gun Show in a few weeks and will be on the look-out. This show is sponsored by the Gun and Cartridge Collectors Association and is usually good for a few additions to the collection.
