    Curry brand rifle bullets

    While staying at home, I've been going through things and finding 'treasures' I'd forgotten.

    Came across 2 partial boxes of bullets made by the Curry Bullet Co., 4504 E Wahington Blvd., Los Angeles 22, California. The boxes are yellow in color and printed with a logo and company info, but the contents info is printed on a red label glued on each end of the box.

    Sorry, no pictures because I'm a tech moron. Pressman has tried to lead me through the process, but he didn't have much to work with on my end. So, if anyone out there can post a picture of what you have, it would be appreciated.

    One box is 150gr 8mm and the other is 180gr 30 caliber. These have the sharpest spitzer points I have ever seen.

    How common are they and has anyone ever tried them?

    Thanks, Steve

    Steve, email me the pictures at the email in my signature line. I will get them posted for you. I would like to see the boxes, as I have not heard of Curry Bullets.

    Very interesting packaging, they remind me of Herter's bullet boxes of the same time period.

    ken is right they were small co --and done the bullets for herters they made the wasp waist [waste] which was as said a waste . you load them and they would push in the case ,think i still have few . the center is pure lead and you can bend the tip . may have been ok
    if geo herter was alive he killed elephants with them
