Hol Pts

U.S. CARTRIDGE CO. Very scarce (tho partial box of 46) Hollow Points w/ NY address, among the last produced by this great, early (founded 1869) ammunition manufacturer which had lapsed into obscurity by 1937. Dunn: US-10B WRF-1 $185

30 Remington Auto
 
Western Super-X. Scarce 1959-61 style box in the desirable Silvertip loading. Rough box but clean rds. $65
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 Winchester. Here's the "1946" style box that replaced the famous "Grizzly" box. Shows some honest shelf wear but the box is solid in all respects and, though not all native to the box, it contains 20 correct Silvertip ctdgs. A bargain at.......... $25
30-'06 Western "Grizzly" box in rare 220 grain. Flaps & seams are tight. And while all the ctdgs are 220 gr Super-X silvertips, 2 have the "Super-X 30 Sprg" headstamp while 18 have the "Super-X 30 G. 1906" headstamp (as pictured on the box). So this very scarce box comes cheap! $125
  32 RIMFIRE, LONG OR SHORT PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
32 S&W

US Cartridge Co. Out of business after 1936, this is one of the last offerings from this historic company which dates back to 1869. Box is a bit rough obviously, but the USC headstamped cartridges are all there and nice & clean. CHEAP!

$25

FIRST Box!

32-20
(32 WCF)
Winchester. This is the FIRST 32-20 box, ca 1882-83. In writing the caption for the earliest 32-20 box we had found prior to putting together this chapter in Giles & Shuey (pg 51), I stated that there should be a box label picturing an unheadstamped cartridge but "...such has not been seen by the authors". Well, here it is...it's 2/3 full (34 rds) but remains a highly collectible box! $595
32-40

Dominion. The scarce & unusual "flat box" with the desirable "Bent-D" logo and Blk Pwdr loading. Tape-removal stains on edges. Has 13 orig rds remaining. Seldom encountered! $75
32-40

Peters. Early 2-pc "Semi-Smokeless" labeling but dating is only a guess, say 1900-1910. Has the early "football" seal on back but contains only 7 ctdgs, 2 of which have been struck. Back-side lower left corner is "soft"; still, a great, seldom-seen, displayable box by an obsolete maker! Cheap! $50
35 Newton

Western. Early 1930s "Bullseye" box but reloaded in the original brass w/ 250 gr JSP. Very professional loads by a well-known outfit (which I'm not at liberty to name here). $75
sold
35 WCF
(Win M1895)
Winchester. Very early (ca. 1906) box in the scarce & desirable Metal Patch (FMJ) loading. Box has 10 orig, correct ctdgs and remains in solid condition w/ nice labels. $115

38 ACP +P

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

Winchester. Black Powder "Picture Box", ca 1898, w/ 33 native-to-the-box ctdgs.

$55

38 S&W Special

Western "Bullseye" box, pre-Olin (late-'40s). Shows a bit of shelf wear but that's all. Clean ammo! $40
38-40 Win-Western "Horse & Rider" box, full but 6 Rem-UMC rds. $60
40-70 WCF

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 10 orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. $70
 

41 SHORT RIMFIRE

PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
405 WCF

Connecticut Ctdg Co. "Unprimed Cases" 10-box but the properly headstamped cases are loaded with Jacketed Soft Points.

$22.50

41 Long Colt
[click to enlarge]
Winchester. As above, 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 significant wear but has no serious flaws and all text remains readable. The cartridges, however, are all headstamped "WRA 41 LDA" and have nickeled primers, both facts being indicative of later manufacture. Still, they are uniform as to condition (see pic) and display very well. The side label showing the Rampant Colt logo, while a bit dirty, is approx 97% and remains uncut. With nicer boxes selling for $900-1300, this a rare opportunity to add a 41 Colt "picture box" to your collection at a much more affordable price!

$565

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

44-40 Shot Dominion. Partial box of 19 clean rds.

$45

45-70 (End flap) Federal. 300 gr Jktd. Hol Pts. Clean both in & out. $28.50

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.
