Military Cartridges


Homepage photo

I am a collector of military rifle and machine gun cartridges and I am one of the very few licensed collectors of live ammunition here in the UK.

In order to share my collection with others, I have photographed each and every cartridge … and there are nearly 4000 of them!  Every photograph shows a side and headstamp view of the cartridge, together with any information I have regarding that individual specimen. These are then catalogued by calibre, starting with the smallest calibre at just 4mm.  Some of these calibre headings will contain just one or two examples, some of the more popular calibres will contain two or three hundred examples.  These larger categories will have their cartridges arranged alphabetically by their country of manufacture.

If you can offer any corrections or information please contact me.  Enjoy … …
