    This one is over 20 years old.
    Does that qualify as vintage?

    I didn’t think so. I’m under 60 and they haven’t put vintage on my license yet. Ha ha

    Don't know when they stopped using these metal 231 Winchester tins, but I bought lots of them when I was shooting a large volume of 9mm and .45 ACP handgun in competition and it was more like 40 years ago ...

    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    That sounds more like what I was thinking. This one was sitting around when I help an old timer cut down rifle brass to make .45 ACP shot loads 25 yeas ago. The family let me pick through some old items laying around. It’s a good memory of him. He would have gotten a kick out of this site. I bet he cast close to a million rounds over his years and reloaded just as much.

    Sled, good idea. I may try that. If I hear my marbles rolling around in the can then I"ll know where to look.

    Vintage probably mid 80's I have an empty one in the basement in better shape than yours. No collector value.
