...not me. I have 8 different rounds in my collection. I know there are some of you with monstrous collections. Let's hear how many different types you have and crown the king!

Bullets, or cartridges?

More than 20 for certain.

(Somewhere around 25-30 but would have to sit and think or look at stocks.)

Umm.. you have to be able to load it in a FsN and shoot it. Well, unless you have an SS90 prototype. That won't load, but it still counts.

Impressive. You mean you don't have one of each all lined up somewhere? :)

There are (or were) a couple of pics of collections on here. Might take some searching though.

Yeah, I remember seeing a picture that included a caseless 5.7 cartridge.. crazy. But are those people active anymore? We need an active member to be crowned the new "King".

Look no further than the ammunition table thread...

The "old" king was Warwolf for obvious reasons. I don't think he has been seen lately though has he?

Scroll down a bit to see a massive 5.7 collection:

What, like a shelf with cartridges instead of Star Wars figures? ;)

Nah. Nothing lined up. All properly stored in magazines and containers.

Shouldn't this clone thread be merged with the original thread?

You should probably fix your title to say "cartridges"; that way when you start your inevitable poll and add it to this thread, people will have a clearer understanding of what you actually mean.

Just don't forget to include "EA Restricted". :thumb:

I only have a few 5.7 cartridges, but I think I win with the widest assortment of all calibers. I'll crown my self king of metal cased cartridge collecting here. :D

No doubt. I read your thread which documented your journey form a very modest bullet collection to a quite impressive one. However, I noticed you are missing .338 Lapua Mag. :)

Here's your thread. It was quite interesting:

Well would "we" feel comfortable enough to enumerate all of them? :) I understand if you don't want to, but 26 is a _ _ _ _ -load of 5.7 rounds and I would feel comfortable crowing your arse king if you did. I believe Warwolf had 22 in his display...

Some of Warwolf's rounds are plain crazy-looking..
