More Information
Traditionally more ammo was made in Birmingham in the United Kingdom than anywhere else. The manufacturers there included the most illustrious names in the Empire, & their shells were used for tigers in India, ptarmigan in the Yukon, & the war against the Mahdi in Khartoum. This in-depth review of the former munitions companies in Birmingham includes a social history as well as definitive information on shotgun & metallic cartridge production across a huge range of products. It gives numerous examples of their related patents & head stamps. The book is profusely illustrated with cartridge photographs as well as historical pictures of the plants & the staff.

The author traces the rise & fall of the ammo companies as they sought to keep up with their time. Demand was fueled by both home & overseas wars & the needs of the sporting market, which led the companies to diversify into many different calibers & loads. Among the many companies covered by the book are such names as BSA, Westley Richards, Kynoch, W.W. Greener, & The Midland Gun Company. Most of their ammunition production is now all but forgotten, but it is well recorded here in this detailed work.
