    Yeah, All I ever find is picked over trash that is priced like it was gold treasure from ancient Egypt.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes. However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Never pick a fight with old people. If they don't think they can win, they'll kill you.

    I got a bit lucky. I ran into a fella who had bought some old military surplus and he overheard me talking to a seller. He said he had a couple boxes full and a couple of wooden crates full of old ammo he had no use for. Went back to his place and bought it all. All kinds of old stuff in here. I'll take some pictures of the whole thing and post them.

    Looks like you have a heck of a start on cartridge board.

    Great find...I like Plate plinker's idea...make a nice cartridge board with the old military cases you found.

    I have 4 large wood cigar boxes full of odd and different cartridges that I should do something with. I have another box of nothing but `African`cartridges of both old English and current American make including both a 600 and 700 Nitro Express.Robert
