Default Many Years Ago

Was going through the Ammo closet and found these from before Winchester bought them out! Many of you were not born yet!

Nice, Hog.... Keep 'em in the original box and maybe they will be worth something to your grandkids..

I think of all of the 30s, 40s and 50s vintage ammo I burned up or gave away because it was OLD PAPER shotgun ammo and the new plastic shells were the coming thing........

Don't you wish you had a few cases of untouched BILLY BEER...??...hehehehehe.. neat stuff...

I have two boxes of Peterson 12ga in the orignal boxes made of cardboard. Dont really know how old they are, found them in a old house several years ago before they tore the house down. Anyone have any idea when paper shells were last made?
