2002 Castle Rock Cartridge Show

Please be patient, there are large graphics on this page.

The 2002 Castle Rock Cartridge Show was one of the best attended shows I have been to in quite a while. The show was hosted by Tom Quigley and attended by quite a group of collectors. I would like to thank George Hoyem and all the collectors who graciously allowed me to scan their cartridges and boxes and share with me their knowledge.

I have included a series of boxes and cartridges from the show.

.375 Hoffman
.50-110 Winchester Express
11mm Chassepot

.375 Hoffman

.375 Hoffman box

This is a Hoffman Arms box of .375 Hoffman cartridges. Has anyone out there seen a Hoffman headstamped cartridge? 

George adds "Hoffman Arms Company started right after WWI in Cleveland, Ohio, then moved to Ardmore, Oklahoma (cheaper rent?), then finally to Amarillo, Texas just before WWII where they made .50 caliber machine gun barrels during the war, and then disappeared.  Hoffman imported some experienced rifle makers from the London gunmakers and created wonderful bolt action rifles, even offered double rifles, but I don't know if they ever made any of those.
