100 Years of Winchester Cartridge Boxes, 1856-1956
The 1st and ONLY
definitive work on cartridge boxes, covering all the calibers for which
Winchester cataloged their rifles, from the Volcanic to the Model 88.
Thoroughly researched, this 312 page book contains
over 1,400 full color photographs as well as price and rarity
guides in a high quality, hard-cover book with dust-jacket!
Will be happy to sign your copy on request.
|2.7 m/m Kolibri||This little guy is the smallest center-fire cartridge ever made, ca 1913. Primer has been struck, but a nice clean example of a rare cartridge. Shown here between a dime and a .22 Short.||SOLD|
|6 m/m Lee
|Winchester. Five "WRACo 6 m/m U.S.N." headstamped Full Metal Jkt rds in orig clip. "Pat. Oct 8 95" stamped on clip base as it should be. Getting quite rare. Have seen the clips alone, w/o ctdgs, go for over $150 on more than one occasion. (Photo'd in shrink-wrap; pls ignore label removal mark)||
|6 m/m Lee||Winchester. Evidence that this was already a slow-selling (read: scarce) caliber by the early 1930s is the fact that this 11-15 dated front label is was over-printed in the late-'20s with "Staynless" then again in the early-'30s with "Non-Mercuric". Solid box w/ good color, no seam splits and all ctdgs native to the box. [Brightness along bottom edge of lid is reflection from shrink-wrap].||
|6.5 m/m Mannlicher-Schoenauer||Norma. Have 2 loadings: 156 gr round nose soft pts & 139 gr ptd SP semi-boat tail. Said to be the best sporting ammo out there. Clean, orig rds.||
||Kynoch, 10-rd boxes of 140 gr Jktd Hol Pt and 160 gr Jktd Hol Pt. Have 2 each.||$50/bx|
|7.65 Roth-Sauer||Winchester. RARE caliber! I have seen exactly 3 boxes of this, EVER! Side label 65-70%. Though first loaded by Win in 1908, the primary (top) label graphics pre-date that by about 2 years. 23 original ctdgs remain.||
|9 M/M Luger||Remington. "Dogbone" box, ca 1930. What makes this box special is the "124 Gr Hollow Point Bullet", a very scarce loading in this caliber. The right flap has been reinforced with transparent tape, otherwise the box is solid and the rds are all correct.||
|UMC. Have 4 clean boxes: Black Pwdr, Berdan-primed ctdgs, all of which appear native to the box. Haven't had any of these on the site for about 15 years!||
12 m/m Shot
|S.F.M. (Fr). Black Powder, Shot ctdgs in a sealed packet of 10 (12?). Very clean & rarely seen.||
