Spartan shot shells
I recently re-read with interest John McDougall’s review of Spartan shot shells (Australian Shooter, October 2017). For many years I collected cartridges and around 1955 I picked up two 12g Spartans, one with an empty case and no primer. They could have been made for reloaders. The other one was N64 shot and both came with a dull yellow-green paper case.
I can’t remember the head stamp as to where they were made and was just wondering if they could have been ‘related’ to the Spartans which John tested.
