    WTB Old Balloon Head Case Revolver Cartridges

    Looking to get some of the old Balloon Head Case Brass for .32 - 20, .38 Special, .44 Russian, .44 Special, .44-40, 45 Colt...a few or a bunch or a big bunch, fine with me.

    Also looking for the old .38 - 44 Brass or old Loaded Cartridges - these are in essence a long .38 S & W Target Cartridge, which had the Bullet or Ball loaded all the way in the Case, and are longer than .38 Special...not the mid 1920s .38 Special "Heavy Duty" which also was called .38-44...

    Are you looking for fired empty brass or loaded rounds? I may be able to help, but shipping of loaded rounds is ridiculous. Empty brass is easy.
    The ENEMY is listening.
    HE wants to know what YOU know.
    Keep it to yourself.

    I'm pretty sure I have some 44 Special, but I'll have to look for the other calibers.

    What I also would really love to find, are empty ( or even old loaded ) Brass for the original 38-44 S & W Cartridge.

    They look like this -

    I finally found a place to go Shooting out here ( outdoors, private, perfect, I can set up a Bulls Eye Target at 50 Yards, and try out my old Himmelwright Boolits and other ones, ) and I wish to Load for a few old Hand Guns using the Brass and Bullet types I would have been using, back when.

    Black Powder for the ones who were, Smokeless for the ones who started off that way...mostly Target Loads.

    So, I am not a Cartridge Collector, I just finally wanted to have my Cartridges really match the Guns as much as possible.
