    Can anyone point me in the right direction for finding these shells for sale. They were uncovered from my dads stash from the mid 1960s to maybe 1975ish. They are Rottweil rifled slugs, in a paper hull. They shoot the best out of anything I have run in my SBE2 but I only have 3 left. SlugsRus seems to be a US disty for Rottweil but doesnt carry the line. The shell does show Brennekke on the bottom but without disassemlbing the shell I cant tell what the actual slug design is.

    I believe the closest today is Brenneke. Plastic hulls, but slugs should be the same if I recall correctly. Go to their web site and look for what you need. JMHO Bob

    Those are Brenneke paper hull slugs. I agree with Bobmar: Try the newer plastic hull ones, they should come close.

    The Brenneke slug design goes back to about 1898.
