    Dominion Cartridge Company merged with several other companies to form Canadian Industries Limited (CIL) well over 50 years ago. The Dominion line of ammunition was offered by CIL then IVI for years after but was probably discountinued over 10 years ago now. The IVI munitions manufacturing equipment was I believe purchased by a group which became Challenger Munitions. Challenger makes shotgun shells under the Challenger brand in the Montreal area. Hard shells to find but great ammunition.

    No idea, the waterfowl loads are new for this year. You might want to give them a call. Very small operation just a couple employees who are also farmmers. If you're interested, better to give them a call now before the spring melt and farming starts up again.
