30-30


 

Dominion. The scarce & unusual "flat box" with the desirable "Bent-D" logo. Msg 1 edge of lid and part of 1 long side. Has 14 orig rds remaining. Seldom encountered! $85
30-30

sold
  32 RIMFIRE, LONG OR SHORT PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
32 Long Rimfire

UMC. Salmon-colored label on plaid 2-pc Blk Pwdr box, ca 1880s. SEALED, but with glitsch (dent) at top edge of top label and on bottom (tho side lbl remains 99% and sealed).  CHEAP!

$97.50
sold

32 S&W Long Winchester. Blk Pwdr loading, late-1890s, one of the earliest in this caliber which was first loaded by Win in 1896. Secondary (side-seal) label dated Aug 1898 shows S&W's recommendation for use in their revolvers; however, I strongly believe this top/primary label is Winchester's first in 32 S&W Long! Box missing 2 sides of lid (which overlap inner lining of bottom) and contains 16 original ctdgs. $65
35 WSL
(Win Mod '05)
Winchester. Full original box but right end flap missing and left flap taped on w/ clear tape. $135

3 BOXES:
375 Winchester
"Big Bore"


3 boxes listed, only 2 pictured here.
Winchester-Western. These "Big Bore" boxes were originally used to introduce this largest of the Big Bore calibers in 1978 along with their new Model '94 Big Bore line of rifles (which also included the .307 and .356). Unfortunately, these boxes, while nice in appearance, contain cartridges which were stained and have been cleaned. There are 3 boxes, two in 200 gr and one 250 gr.  All 3 for $225.  Or take these 3 bxs as well as the 2 in next listing below, all 5, for $250, SHIPPED FREE. [NO RETURNS] 

 [2 bxs shown, photo'd in shrink-wrap. 3rd box label is just as nice]

200 gr @ $80 each;
250 gr @$ 85
or
all 3 for $225, shipped!

2 BOXES:
.375 Winchester
"Big Bore"

 2 BIG BORE BXS As above except with these 2 boxes the 250 gr box is missing about 20% of its front label while the 200 gr box, while full, is missing ALL of its front label.  Further, there are only 12 ctdgs in the 250 gr box and, like the above boxes, all 32 rds were stained and have been cleaned. Take these 2 bxs as well as the 3 above for $250, INCLUDING shipping [NO RETURNS] $35
8 m/m Lebel Remington. Earliest Kleanbore box w/ 18 rds + baggy w/ 8 add'l later Rem-UMC rds, 26 ctdgs in all. Powder shakes free in all ctdgs and all have nickeled primers. $45

38 ACP +P

1980s white bxs Win-Western, 130 gr FMJ +P loading (NOT for old 38 ACP autos like Colt 1903) $30
 
38 RF Long

U.S. Cartridge Co. This is the highly collectible "Woodcut" box, ca 1870s, with the 2 wildlife/hunting vignettes, gun pix and "Shield Logo". While the red print calling out "38/100 Calibre" (right oval) and "Metallic Cartridges" (left oval) has faded somewhat the rest of the extraordinary detail remains.  All ctdgs appear native to the box; further, this "Target Cartridges" box (see lower pic) has an original target enclosed.
(Note: this is a different box than the one on the "Other Rimfire" pg)
$215
38 RF Long

US Cartridge Co. This seldom-seen box is thought to be ca 1880. Cartridges are all native to the box and have the "raised 'US' in a circle" headstamp. Side-label 95+%. A nice eary Blk Pwdr box! $120
38-55
High Velocity

Imperial (Canada) . True High Velocity (1600 fps), arguably the best hunting cartridges in this caliber; unfortunately only 17 rds remain in this box, so... $60
41 S. RF

Remington "Dogbone" box, ca early 1930s. Box is a bit rough but flaps intact and with no repairs. Contains 26 clean, correct (possibly later) "U" headstamped ctdgs. $85
sold
 

41 SHORT RIMFIRE

PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
41 Long Colt

Winchester. Circa mid-1880s/early '90s, this Black Powder, Colt Thunderer "Picture Box" is one of the most sought-after of all Colt boxes. Top label shows some even shelf wear. Side-seal label (tho not sealed on 3 sides) is approx 80-85% but the side featuring the Rampant Colt logo is closer to 99% & is SEALED. (see pic). There are 35 "WRACo  .41 L.D.A." headstamped cartridges though not all are native to the box as some have slightly different primers.  Still, these boxes are highly collectible and displayable and this one is CHEAP! $545
on hold
44 Colt Packet
(REPRO)

Paul R. Murphy, Boston Mass. This packet of 6 reproduction .44 Colt "Combustible Envelope Cartridges", while not a risk to being passed off as a genuine, "period" packet, it is minty and quite possibly (and feels like) it contains repro cartridges (unlike the phony packets going around). Anybody know anything about these, when they were made or who Paul Murphy was? Neat item at any rate!

$50

44 C.L.M.R.
(8 rds only)
U.M.C. Eight (8 only) early headstamped rds for the ".44 Colt's Lightning Magazine Rifle". Headstamps clean but some cases w freckling or staining. Pix show all 8 ctdgs in 2 positions for better view of the cases. $100
45-85 Marlin Connecticut Ctdg Co. In business from 1962 till about 1975, this company manufactured a line of cartridges advertised as "Cartridges Out of the Past -- Being Produced Again and Sold Here -- Fire your 'Old Favorite' Again".  This box is of the earlier style, ca 1962-3.  Contains all 20 orig smkls, JSP ctdgs,  headstamped 45-85, & which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise.
