Some big bore additions to the collection
      #339420 - 26/03/20 01:10 PM

I won a lot at an auction recently and part of the lot were quite a few original and collectible British cartridges.
Among them were these gems.

Eley 8bore, 700NE, 600NE, and a nice 577 Rewa.
The Rewa may even be a very rare original from 1930! To the best of my knowledge (very little) the original run from Kynoch had the K stamp. Hoyem says that none of the originals survive (that I would think went with the rifle to Martand Singh).
There were also many good examples of other BP and nitro cartridges which I will show off later as I go through them.

He who lives in the past is doomed to enjoy it.

As a fan of large bore guns/rifles thank you for posting

I would have left out the .700 as it is clearly a modern attempt to create a super calibre

I also would love an original .600/577 Rewa but have to make do with a copy case/bullet from BB

The 8 bore is ideal as a general gun/rifle of the time, my H&H ball gun is the pride of my collection

Shooting Cal Pappas' .600 NE in Alaska a year or so ago was a serious experience, despite the pain and the recoil pad

Thanks for posting
