$69.95, ppd
22 VL Caseless Daisy. 100-rd pack of their Caseless ammo. $20
25 RF Long  UMC. While only 11 orig ctdgs remain, this box is thought to date from the late-1890s. Solid, but has very old transparent tape mark across lid (see pic). $40
25 RF Short Winchester. This Blk Pwdr 2-pc box is label-dated 10-11. While containing but 24 cartridges, the side-seal label remains sealed on 3 sides; unfortunately, the left end was torn open and the remaining 26 rds were removed (as well as the left lid-end.) $35
25 RF Short Winchester. This bright, 2-pc full-cover box dates from 1939-45. The label covers top and both ends and (originally) sealed on the bottom. The box has been opened, however, and now contains 22 original ctdgs. $55
 
25-20 HV
(60 Gr JHP)
Remington. High Velocity 60 Gr Jktd Hollow Pt. Box contains 40 original "R-P" headstamped rds and 10 older "Rem-UMC" rds.  (End flap pictured). Tried to buy ANY .25-20 lately?? $65
25-20 Winchester. The 3rd and scarcest variety of the popular & colorful Type of '35/'39/'45. This is the scarce "Olin Industries" variety of 1945, made only about 18 mos. Box has only 9 ctdgs and does show some wear (rt flap re-attached); hence, it's a Bargain Bin item! $38.50
32 ACP
(32 Auto)
Western. Late-1920s Lubaloy labeling on 2-pc "Red Diamond" box in scarce Soft Pt loading. Unfortunately, the contents are all later, nickel-primer rds in Full Metal Jkt, mostly Rem-UMC headstamped. Collectible box, probably "shootable" rds. $20
32-20 Winchester "1946" bx and Western "1962" box, both full of mixed, mostly lead b't, ctdgs, all with nickel primers. Some R-P, W-W, Western, WRA. Cheap 100 rds! $70
(for both)
30-40 Blanks Remington. Early 1920s "Paper Bullet Blanks". Two boxes wrapped as one--1 box full, the other w/ 5 rds. Cheapest thing on the website! $17.50


32 RF Long

 

Winchester. Post-war box (early-1950s) of 30 original rds. $87.50
  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! $28.50
8m/m Lebel

Remington Klnbore box w/15 cln orig rds + 2 fillers. [Box brighter than pic shows]. $40
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
351 WSL
(Win Mod '07)
Winchester or Peters, 180 gr FMJ loading. Boxes a bit rough--some taped or split edges or flap seams loose, but cartridges are CLEAN!

                                            HAVE SEVERAL, JUST IN, GET 'EM WHILE I GOT 'EM!
$90/box
38 Automatic, but... Winchester, "1946 Style". Titled "38 Automatic" but in smaller print underneath: "For Colt Super 38 Automatic Pistol". Clean, correct nickel-plated shells headstamped "SuperSpeed 38 Auto". $30

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 Special

Western "Bullseye" box, pre-Olin (late-'40s). Shows a bit of shelf wear but that's all. Clean ammo! $40
38 S&W Special
200 Grain

Remington. Early "Dogbone" box, ca earl-1930ss, in the very scarce 200 grain so-called "Police Bullet" loading. While the primary label has good color and only a minor scratch, both flaps have been re-attached w/ transparent tape; still, this box remains very displayable. Believed to be the second of only 2 varieties of the first style box in this load, this one contains 16 original nickel-cased rds.  [If you want a nicer one, pls go to "50-rd" link at top of this pg] $50
38-40
(38 WCF)

Winchester. Black Powder box, 11-8 lbl-dtd. (See Giles & Shuey, pg 60.) Box shows some edge repairs (pasted tight) but the 1-11 dtd side-seal is 95%. While the ctdgs are properly headstamped, the primers are "w" marked. It is probable the cartridges are therefore replacements as Blk Pwdr rds aren't generally seen so-marked until the mid-'Teens. So...we'll make this a Bargain Bin item... $335

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 R.F.

Remington. 1950s box but rds look pre-war. One flap detached.

$145

41 SHORT RIMFIRE

PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
41 Swiss
(Vetterli)

Leon Beaux (Italy), made for Winfield Arms in California in the 1950s (when guns & ammo were legal there). Bottom of box held on by duct tape but center side-seal label still intact on 1 edge and ammo appears as if it's never been out of the box. The last stuff made in this caliber and getting very hard to find by ANY maker!

$195
 

43 Spanish

Remington-UMC, Berdan-primed Blk Pwdr ctdgs ca late-'Teens. Two boxes, both in lousy condition, but containing all 40 of their original ctdgs. Cheap!

$100, shipped, for BOTH!

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!

$45

44 S&W Russian Peters. Blk Pwdr, 2-pc box, circa 1907-10. Very solid box containing 20 clean, original ctdgs. Side-seal label approx 95%. Very displayable 100-year-old+, black powder box at a very affordable price.

$155

44-40

U.M.C., Black Powder, 2-pc box, ca late-1890s/early-1900s, containing later Peters ctdgs. Box is near perfect, bright box and labels w/ side seal over 95%. A great display box plus 50 nickel-primer ctdgs. Have seen a lesser condition EMPTY box like this sell for $100 on eBay and shootable bxs of 44-40s sell for $50-$75. Do the math!

$100

45 ACP
(45 Auto)
200 gr!

Remington-UMC 2-pc box, ca 1914-16 labeling (tho faded) in scarcer, early 200 gr loading but containing 30 rds of mostly WWI (20 rds) and later (WWII+, 10 rds). Most of the ctdgs are year-dated (the WWI ctdgs being Peters, Win, Fed, USC, 1917-18). Interesting assortment of ctdgs and a box (200 gr)  appropriate for even the earliest pre-1911 Colt Autos.

$47.50

45 Colt

Frankford Arsenal. While Oct 1873 is the earliest of these packets, it is virtually unobtainable making this Nov offering the earliest of the dates that (occasionally, at least) come on the market. While still full, this one however appears to have had its string pulled and then skillfully pasted back. Fortunately, the appearance of this packet is exceptionally nice and bright and it displays beautifully with a couple barely noticeable seam or edge splits that lack the varnish or lacquer that would normally fill them in. A real bargain at...

$695

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.

$85

"Remington's Army Pistol,
Calibre .50"
Frankford Arsenal. So-called "Bannerman" box w/ date cut out. Bannerman's, a NY Military Surplus dealer from just after the Civil War until ca 1950, hired ladies to cut dates out of these 1870s (prob 1872-dated) boxes so customers, buying the packets years--even decades--later, wouldn't know how old the ammo was. This box has had its string pulled and, absent the shrink-wrap, the ammo can be seen inside if you choose to display it that way. A neat bit of history! $175
20 Ga Remington Nitro Express. New, out of an original case but shows oil stains and edge bulges, so...
