Eley Cartridges – Harding C.W.
Eley is a household name to many British shooters, but little has been written on the family’s history. “Eley Cartridges” traces the history of the Eley name from its agricultural roots in Derbyshire, through its rise to famous London silversmiths and into its production of ammunition both in London and Birmingham. For the last two centuries, the name or mark of Eley has appeared on domestic flatware, fashion accessories and of course on both military and sporting ammunition. The inventive ability of its founders aided by changes in technology is reflected in the advancements it afforded to both sportsmen and weapon designers. This book shows their major achievements in the evolution of the cartridge industry.
