God knows who wrote this letter,
They are asking about 300 Sherwood, and 7mm MS which doesnt exist!

it appears that 300 sherwood do exit since 1900s produced by Westley Richards.

7mm MS is 7mm Mannlicher–Schönauer
or 7mm Mauser

Good luck with importing .300 Sherwood, since that cartridge hasn't been loaded for a considerable time. Maybe if a large enough order is placed, some manufacturer will tool up for it. :roll: Your clue, IOF. As to the 7mm M-S, ain't no such animal, and never was.

Indeed, who writes such stuff?

While they are at it, they might as well add the Polycase Ammunition to their list
