    I just shot some of those green remingtons, had some black ones too.
    shot them and threw the empties away.
    it's all an educated guess,,,, till the trigger is pulled.

    Got some paper 410s and 20s. Fraid to shoot the 410s they are probably zingers. I need to set the old hydraulic Spolar up and kick out a couple of cases of 20 and 28. Post some picks here when I get home.

    I not only have a wooden G.I. ammo crate filled with boxes of paper shells I found an unopened full wood Winchester ammo crate of target shells at an auction of a hardware store in a small town that had been closed for many years back in 1990. The manifest was still on the box with a 1958 shipping date. Once again I am sorry I cannot figure out how to post photos.Robert

    To post pics here, I just noticed a click thingy, directly above, the left square one, in the middle, that makes it really easy instead of just quite easy.

    those directions are good from the dialog to post page

    I love the way a fired paper hulled shell smells , brings back memories of rabbit hunting in the 1960's with my dad and uncles. I would pick up every empty hull and bring them back home.

    Plastic just doesn't smell the same.

    Agree! I use to shoot quite a bit of clay targets & would purchase cases of Federal paper target loads in 28gram 12 ga. Man what a fast load. I would reload them with black Powder or if a partial jug of a synthetic powder was around I'd use it up.

    Nothing will wake a quite sporting clays trapper up faster than letting loose 2 12 shells of BP on a frosty morning.

    I have several pounds of powder from teh 60's and 70's that when loaded smells like the old powder smell.

    The boxes in the wooden cases probably have not been touched or removed from case sin"e the day they were packed at the factory. I h!ve stored them for the last 25 years in a cool basement on wooden shelves. I have shot shells from some of the loose boxes in the last few years and rate of misfire is less than 1%.
