    Frontier Cartridges 30-06

    I've had this original box of 30-06 Frontier Cartridges in my ammo locker longer than I can remember..late 60's early 70's ?
    Any input as to the value as collectable is appreciated.

    I believe, and have read that Frontier [Hornady] used re-claimed military brass and loaded their own bullets in the cases and sold them as Frontier before Hornady became a cartridge company.

    The head stamps of the cartridges in the box:
    TW 52, 53 Twin Cities Ord. MN
    LC 54 Lake City Ammo Plant MO
    SL 54 55 St Louis Ord. MO
    RA 55 Remington Arms CT
    FA 55 Frankfort Arsenal PA
    And one cartridge with a TW 42 Dark one, bottom row center

    I remember seeing Frontier .30/06 cartridges loaded in military cases in the late 1960s.

    I guess that would be about right........just never shot them in my Ruger 77
