$69.95, ppd
22 Savage High Power Peters. Two-pc bx, ca 1920, possibly a bit earlier. Full tho 2 or 3 rds w/ primers showing corrosion. Not a bad early box for little, if any, more money than a post-war box of "shooters". $40
22 Savage High Power Remington-UMC "Split-Logo" box, the earliest in this caliber, ca 1911-12, with the rds still bearing the "UMC" (pre-"Rem-UMC") headstamp which also can be seen on the ctdg pic on the box front-lid. Of further interest is an interior cartridge neck holder in which the individual ctdgs rest, keeping the sharp, pointed bullets from ripping out the box bottom. A great idea that, had it caught on, would've saved for us collectors a lot of great 2-pc boxes containing pointed bullets! This box, while it has only 4 rds remaining, is a great example of UMC's 1st in this great innovative caliber by Charles Newton! $80
30 Remington HARD PLASTIC BXS Remington-Peters ("R-P 30 Rem" headstamps). Clean, original, factory soft point ctdgs in high quality, hard plastic 2-pc boxes. NOT RELOADS!  Have 2. $45 ea
sold
30-30 "Winchester High Velocity"

Western. Bullseye box, early 1930s pre-Super-X with "W.C.Co." in upper left corner of back. Scarce loading. This is the only Winchester or Western loading in any caliber that is titled as "Winchester High Velocity" yet is not headstamped "W.H.V." (like earlier WHV-titled loadings) nor is it loaded to higher than normal velocities except as allowed by the use of a lighter (150 gr) bullet than the standard 170gr. Quite scarce and in solid condition w/ tight seams & flaps BUT it contains only 3 rds. $50
sold
303 Savage

UMC. Early Smkls "Expansive Bullet" 2-pc box. Has 13 native-to-the-box rds. Very clean & solid, great display box for that Savage Mod 1899!

$90
 
  32 RIMFIRE, LONG OR SHORT PLEASE SEE "OBSOLETE" PAGE FOR OTHER POSSIBLE LISTINGS IN THIS CALIBER  
32 Remington

US Ctdg Co.  TWO  2-pc boxes containing 37 FMJ rds of which 32 are clean and 5 show tarnish (NOT corrosion). No split necks (that I can see anyway). Brass "US"-marked primers. Boxes not considered very collectible, but nice rds. CHEAP!

$25
sold

32 S&W

Winchester. Full-cover 2-pc box, ca early-1920s. Solid box w/ great colorful labeling containing 23 original ctdgs.

$25

32-40

UMC. Early, blk pwdr box, ca 1890 "For Ballard & Marlin, Winchester and other Rifles." Earliest "Guarantee" label. Contains 13 "UMC 32-40" HS rds, correct but not all native to the box.

$100

33 Winchester 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 later style, ca 1964-75.  Full of orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise (though many w/ split necks not reloadable). $65
33 Winchester Dominion (C.I.L., Canada). Interesting 2-pc box for the Win model 86 collector: Note the front label which reads "Adapted to Winchester Model __  Rifle" where the model number is blacked out and "86" is stamped in below the blackout. One wonders what model was there originally!! Torn label but all original early "D.C. Co" headstamped rds and priced like a box of "shooters". Never seen another! $110
sold
33 Win Winchester, "1946 Style". Box is full of clean, correct ammo but is missing both end flaps. $90
35 S&W Remington-UMC. Two-pc box, ca 1916-20, in "Metal Point Bullet" (Full Patch, lead-bearing) loading. Ctdgs are surprisingly clean. $95
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
9m/m RF Long Shot Winchester. This is the early full-cover 2-pc box, mid-1920s/early-'30s, pre-Western Ctdg Co. Thirty original, red paper-tubed shells remain. Cheap! $77.50
38 Auto (ACP)
 
Remington. Mixed box of clean cdgs: 34 correct to the box "R-P" (Rem-Peters) rds + 16 WRA (Winchester) rds. These for the Colt 1903. $60
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
38-40

Winchester. The last "pure" Winchester bx (pre-Western marketing combination), ca 1960s. Box has 35 orig rds and 15 "Western"-headstamped rds. Nothing great here but significantly cheaper than a new box at current store prices! $60
38-44 S&W Special

Remington. This "rough" example is missing both flaps and contains but 15 original ctdgs; BUT, S&W collectors know how difficult it is to find these boxes or even individual, properly headstamped cartridges! Only around for a few years in the 1930s and with a limited number of the guns ever made for it (the .357 S&W Magnum stole the spotlight) this caliber is seldom seen! $50
38-56

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 later style, ca 1964-75.  Contains 12 orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. $50
38-56

Winchester. Two-pc Smkls box, ca 1919. Box is of the early "taped construction" type (see Giles & Shuey, pp 14-15) and shows some edge-end separations pasted back, a common occurrence w/ these boxes. Also 3 ctdgs, though properly (& identically) headstamped, are later additions. All are clean. A cheap box!

$195

401 WSL

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 19 orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. $70
40-60 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. Full of orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. [The "250GR" bullet callout is an error--I weighed them and they apear to be the old standard 210 gr.] $50
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
40-82

Winchester. Two-pc Smkls box, ca 1930s, W/ 19 orig ctdgs. These rds have the late Staynless nickeled, non-mercuric primers and the powder inside "shakes free". The box ain't great (tape around ends and missing some front label) but the cartridges are fine. Winchester boxes in this caliber are the hardest to find of all thirteen of the M86 calibers except the 50-100-450, 38-70 & 40-70. Here's a cheap one. $175
sold
 

41 SHORT RIMFIRE

43 Spanish

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 later style, ca 1964-75.  Contains 10 orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. $25
44 Bull Dog

UMC. Very scarce box & caliber. Unfortunately, label shows dark areas and box contains but 9 original rds. $50
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

45-70

Western. "Bullseye" box w/ 15 native-to-the-box rds + 5 rds w/ more rounded primers and "Western 45-70 Govt" instead of just "Western 45-70" headstamp. Solid, colorful box w/ clean rds, seldom seen without split seams or missing/detached flaps! $65
50-70

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 later style, ca 1964-75.  Full of orig ctdgs, properly headstamped, which still appear quite capable of fulfilling the Co's promise. $95
