Jonathan,

Simple lack of availability. For some reason the BB shells seem to have ceased production in the very early 60's. I think lug production continued for many years after that. To my crcollection, the latest date frame I own with a Nervex BB shell is my 1962 Masi Special. Paramounts seem to stop having Nervex BB shell about the same time. For some reason the BB shell went the way of the dinosaurs. The Nervex BB shell is a good one, but not anything exceptional.
