    Extraordinary! I had no idea such item existed. The same goes for the draw set.

    Wow! Never seen anything like it.

    A few interesting things I see quickly:


    1. No .375 cal. so likely pre 1961 - I assume they would be making projectiles by the time the L61 .375 H&H was being chambered
    2. Has a .243 cal. so likely post 1955

    Very cool Susanna. Thanks for posting.

    Cheers John

    Very nice!!

    I have never seen that one before but there are at least one other variation out there, perhaps more?

    Thanks for sharing!

    What a beauty,
    Does your friend have any idea of its history and where it was displayed?

    sorry to say but there is no history for either board, both came from the same private seller quite some years ago. note that there are projectiles for the 7x33 & semi pt 70gr 25 cal which is what sako loaded in their 25-20 wcf ammo.
    some of the projectiles i have never seen in sako factory loaded ammo, ie 44mag ?

    Does anyone know what year they started using the term Hammerhead for certain calibers.

    Awesome!

    Some additional clues by dating the cartridges mentioned on the board:
    7mm mag, I presume is the 7mm Rem Mag which was introduced in 1962 which would suggest post 62.

    Also some of the 5.7mm projectiles are listed as 222 and some as 223. The 223 Rem was commercialised about 1964 so this would suggest post 64.

    The Hammerhead name would be another good date to pin down.

    The labels are actually the labels from the bullet boxes (you can see the box count vertically on the right hand side of each label). These labels match the ones from the yellow/orange circle pattern boxes in my collection. I know this style of box was used up into the eighties but I am not sure when that style was introduced.

    Saw another one of these for sale a while back but missed it. Whats interesting is that the projectiles go the other way to Susanna's one and its a bit different in projectiles. No doubt they were all put together by hand. They certainly look cool :cool:
