Default 38/44 HD Ammo Guide

I have put together a guide that covers the major ammo companies and their products from 1930-1965, the time period that the HD was manufactured. If you want an electronic copy, send me a PM with your email address.
Bill

Glad you like it, I learned a lot doing it, now when I see a box of ammo, I can pretty much tell what period it was made in.

Oh, thank you so much and pleeease send me that!

If I can't have quantities of original .38-44 ammunition for chronograph tests than I can at least read about the original products.

For those of you who have email providers who don't like large files (21mb), I have split the file into 2 parts, so send your email again and we will see if both go thru.

Yes, Bill's a hero for providing his compilation. There's more to it than only .38-44 stuff. It's a good reference for box styles through the years. I learned something when he sent a copy to me.

Many thanks for putting this together. I saw a few "BC Police" HDs at a gun show here in British Columbia a few years ago. Wish I'd had $1,200 on me that day!


EDIT: $1,200, not 41,200
