    collectible ammo?

    was surfing around the 'net, looking at different HP ammo. i came across listings for 'Black Talon ' from winchester. i read about it, why it was banned, and all the rest. when i tried to find out more about it, i came across some sites that sold it as 'collectible' or a 'collector's' ammo. "get 'em now, before they're gone!" most of them read. this got me thinking: is there such a thing as ammunition that can be considered rare, strange, exotic, or fancy enough to be sought after by collecters? i'm a knife collecter, and i know many of you are gun collecters; is there a market out there for ammo collecters? just a thought...

    Not sure if there is a market per se but yes, there is little doubt folks do collect. I do in a small way but I doubt there is too much that will make us millionaires!

    I have a few real old rounds and I keep them more from interest than any thought of making big bucks ......... but if some ammo is obsolete or hard to find - gotta be worth tucking a few rounds away for future interest.

    I don't know how popular they are these days but manufacturers used to make display boards with a wide variety of their cartridges on them. I imagine if you find some factory loaded ammo that is obsolete or discontinued for some reason there would be someone out there willing to pay for it.

    What about collector's edition ammo?
