    Remington 32 S&W

    I was gifted these artifacts of shooting history and began thinking if I should just keep these for collectability or bury them 6 feet under to avoid lead poisoning! LOL

    Love those old boxes and powder tins and old factory ammo. It’s like owing a piece of history!

    Collectors would love that stuff. Sell them and use the proceeds to buy shooting ammo!

    Nice antiques there. Yeah if you don't want to keep for posterity, you can sell them to the collectors. They do show some history.

    In US military ammo the above is correct, but noncorrosive commercial ammo appeared in the mid-1920s.

    Old US commercial ammo having copper-colored primers will be corrosive.
    Noncorrosive primers were generally nickel plated, but not all nickel-plated primers were noncorrosive. Pre-WW2 U.S.Ctg. Co. primers were nickle plated, but corrosive.
