I was digging through the gunroom today and ran across these. About 100 new never fired primed 2 1/2" 24 gauge cases. I bought them the last time I was stationed in England. I've never owned a 24 bore.

Do you know anyone who has a 577 Snider?
These can be used in one.

I have often found rifle ammo both factory and reloaded, safely stored away, decades after I sold the rifle. As a rule I will give away factory ammo, with the rifle, if to a private buyer, but not any reloaded ammo. Sometimes you find stuff you forgot you ever had, sometimes it is stuff you expected to use in another rifle, which so far you have not gotten around to buying. And sometimes it stuff given to me by friends, getting out of shooting and figuring I might need it later. It’s like Christmas. I’m told Alzheimer’s is like Christmas every day but not so much in a good way.

I'll go out on a limb here and guess that there aren't a lot of 24 bore shotguns in Alaska. I have them advertised locally but no one has contacted me.

If that is actually a problem, a lot of people right here share it.

I don’t think it is that big a problem.

I've often wondered if the problem is generic. Does the natural urge to store things such as food, arms, or utensils turn us into packrats that store more than we can use, and eventually into collectors of useless items for personal pleasure? I've got a house, barn, and two old granaries full of stuff that could satisfy all three of these theories.
