    Bullets wanted for collection

    Hi guys, I've recently started a bullet collection from empty packets etc I had lying around (except the .50bmg) as it's something that interest me. If anyone around Palmerston North is will look hook me up with a bullet from your calibre that's not listed that would be much appreciated....A beer for a bullet if you will.

    Currently have:
    .50 bmg
    .300 win mag
    7mm rem mag
    .270 Win
    .303 British
    6.5x55 Sweden
    7mm-08
    .308 Win
    .243 Win
    .223 Rem
    .45 ACP
    .22 LR

    12Ga
    20Ga

    As a long time cartridge collector - bullets are the bit that comes out the front of the barrel. The whole assembly of bullet seated in the case is called a cartridge.

    You might like to look at the New Zealand Cartridge Collectors Club - been going since 1961 , strong membership and lots of good cartridges available from members.

    Have things like 220 swift, 257 Roberts, 250-3000, 22 Hornet, 17Hornady,short magnums plus other bits and pieces. Never realised how many calibres I've owned. If you can't find them local give me a call.

    It can become expensive, but the club needs some youngsters amongst its ranks!!

    Yes - I was in my late twenties when I joined , did a stint on the Club Committee , did ten years as Bulletin Editor and pretty much reverted to being an irregular attender for the last few years. But once a collector - always a collector ... ;-)

    I am just 60 now so a few years to go yet ...

    Drop me a PM
