New Russian Cartridges

Posted on August 29th, 2014

I was able to add some new Russian pinfire cartridges to my collection. These were excavated from the ground in Ukraine.

Information about these can be found on their Manufacturer’s Page

I also acquired some unknown cartridges that were excavated around Ukraine. I have no idea who made these.
