    The UMCC pistol cartridges box, and the Wards cleanfire box get my attention.

    Man those are neat. Thanks for sharing. How old is that UMC box that oldschool mentions?

    I've looked for dates on most of the boxes, and none of them have any.
    I'm guessing they didn't think it was important back then.
    Probably not important now, because I don't recall seeing dates on new ammo.
    So many different companies made .22 ammo back in the "good old days".

    Some of those make my Montgomery Wards labeled box look new.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    I have a few old boxes too, some full or partially full (not pristine). A relevant question: is there any point in keeping the original ammo with them, or just shooting it up and keeping the boxes? They're nice old boxes but nothing pristine.

    Personally I'd keep the ammo and occasionally shoot a few just for the enjoyment. I wouldn't burn it through a semi auto just cause.

    I recognize all of them, except the "Seeker".
    Where is that from ? Who made it ?
    I HATE auto-correct


    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.
