600 NITRO EXPRESS

This was a Jeffery & Co. development in 1903 as a smokeless alternative to the 4 and 8 Bore Black Powder rifles for use in Africa.

The first two specimens were made by BELL, with the last one by Bertrams Australia as a commemorative for Deutsche Waffen Journal

The fourth specimen is a commemorative cartridge made for the 1994 IWA show in Germany for one of the sponsons, Verband Deutscher Buchsenmacher und Waffenfachhandler.

  

Written on the cartridge: 600 NITRO Hand made by Bill Ballard, Billings Montana

  

  

  

This is the rarest of the 600's as the Jeffery version was one the earliest together with the 2 no-headstamped variations above.

  

                     

The first 2 specimens are the Monolithic and "Dead Tough" loads by A-Square.
