1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    If stored well they should be ok. If you have a squib check the barrel for obstructions before firing again. If one does not go off wait a while before ejecting it. Someone may want them and swap you some new shells.
    Cheers Andy

    When I was a kid I found a box of . knows how many (200?) in a barn. I didn't have a clue what they were and spent many a happy hour unwrapping the paper cases and making two separate piles; one of little metal balls and one of an odd black powder....!

    Follow what r10hunter says and you can't go wrong,eley fourlong where really good cartridges back in the day,I found some old ones when I had a 410 and that was 30 odd years ago and they were very old then,must be at least 50 years old,but they look dry with no corrosion so I would think they would be fine.

    Yes, I agree; if the OP were closer I'd do a swap for some new cartridges.

    Yeah they will be mate, 1960's best, but they look as good as the day they were made and reckon you would have no probs with them, but at the end of the day if your not sure don't use them.

    The cases and primers look to be fine, as long as the crimps are sound they should be good. Loose crimps which let shot leak out can cause major problems but is more of a problem with reloads with star crimps.

    Ive shot dozens and dozens of old no4's, no5'sand 6's of old eley furlongs. And went bang. Ive also use a good few 2" No6's eley, again okay ... all were many years old, l was given them ...just use them, if they don't fire, just go through the misfire procedure ... though l'd guess they will all be okay ..

    If they have been dry stored they should be al right just make sure your gun is chambered for the length of the cartridges.
