    Group shot

    I was messing around with the collection today and pulled out a few of the experimental (or less common) rounds for a group shot.
    Thought it would interest a few of you.
    If anyone is stuck on what any of them are just say.
    All INERT.
    Dave.

    Dave, please make a list with what they are. They look real strange to me as an old german Marine collector.

    Yes, post a list. This pre 1920 old fart,-ere, fossil, would like to know what some of the strange items are. Lots of study, work and engineering are evident there.
