    175mm long 12 ga cartridge

    20210621_152902.jpg20210621_153649.jpg


    Recent acquisition.
    Is this a novelty item?
    It reads " Winchester
    Shotshell
    Tour
    1984 "
    Headstamp looks standard to my untrained eye.
    I enquire because the words " harpoon gun " were asked ....

    Can anyone shed light on this ?
    I realise that it is not military
    Thanks very much

    I am vague on the answer but I thought it was for a USA shotshell show commemorative I saw in Gun Report or somewhere years ago. I await answers too.

    Certain factories used to give them out to commemorate visits by special guests. I've seen 8-10 and have a different one then the one shown, there are probably dozens more.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel
