I was at a gun show today and bought 4 boxes (10 shells to a box) of 12 gauge Alcan brass shotshells, new old stock. Made in Italy by Giulio Fiocchi and they take an Alcan G 57 F primer. Is this the same as the old #57 shotshell primer? I also bought a tin of 100 of the afore mentioned primers made by Alcan. Are the old #57 primers so obsolete that they cannot be found anywhere? I think if I root through my old inventory, I might find some I had squiriled away. Any thought or comments? Thanks, Bud

I had 100 of the Alcan all brass hulls in 20 ga I used to load hunting loads. The Remington 57 primer worked fine.

Does anyone know if #57 primers can be obtained in this day and age? Thanks, Bud

gunsnrods, Did you recently acquire these? Would you be interested in selling some or all of them? Thanks, Bud

I bought them last Fall at a gun shop, been is their stock for years...they probably bought at an auction, price stickers on each sleeve. All I want is one empty sleeve for my junk collection...I will sell you the rest, I'll check on USPS regs, we may have a problem with these shiiping via US Mail.
Would you sell me one brass Alcan to go with my junk collection?

I will GIVE you two brand new Alcan 12 gauge Brass shells. I understand your wanting to check with the shipper however if hazmat fees are involved, it becomes less attractive to the point of "not worth it". I will send you a PM. Thanks, Bud

Some of the folks that had all brass hulls that used a pistol primer reamed them out so they could use a 209 primer. It may be possible to ream out the 57 size to a 209 size with little problem.
