    Every time I try and post a picture, I get an error message saying it failed, but no reason why it failed

    Go to the main forum page "Frequently asked questions" posting pics is in there.
    I think if you get a blip in your internet signal for a split second it will corrupt the upload.
    There are a lot more savvy computer folks here that might help but not in "Vintage" ;^)

    HOLLYWOOD Collector Left hawg 405#, right one 315#, had my elderly neighbors granddaughter treed and why I got the call. Both charged, one from 20' and one from 40'. Thanks to the good Lord and Samuel Colt I won. May God bless our Lawmen & Soldiers!

    Pretty ammo boxes are nice, but inexpensive ammo is nicer.

    Having collected old boxes for years I find it a great hobby. Many still have the factory ammo as well. .410 and 22 Hornet are my fovorites.

    Whoa, that's some old stuff. What year range is that from and what guns were 38 Long Rimfire intend for? Was that the conversion of the cap and ball revolvers, or stuff like the old single shot rifles?

    The .38 rimfire cartridge was a common round for many antique revolvers and rifles from the 1870s to the early 1900s. It was a common self-defense round for small revolvers through to the 1890s. Ammo production ceased upon the country's entry into World War II and was never resumed again by any of the major manufacturers. Hopkins & Allen, Colt, Remington and others produced revolvers and rifles chambered for the .38RF. I have a Remington Smoot revolver that I am restoring in 38 RF.

    That box of ammo is almost certainly more than 100 years old.
