    Really rare box of cast bullets!

    Here's a box of bullets I've never seen or heard of! It's made by Tobe Watkins, who was a very good schuetzen shooter in the Davenport Iowa area in the early 1900's. Cast from a Pope mold for the .32-40! Full box too!

    Very cool! Where did you find them?

    Are they lubed or do they recommend hand lubing with waterpump grease? Nice pickup.

    Interesting old box, but I'm wondering how three months ago, on June 9th, the box was empty, and now, somehow, it's full. Hmm...
