Great old ammo.

I have been reloading .222 for years and love the caliber. Have several rifles. I never got caught up in the .223, but probably should have bought one or a
22-250.

I was looking through one of my cabinets this evening and found a full box of Winchester Super X .222 PTD Soft Point 50 grain. The price on the box was $2.79 plus tax and dated 9-22-65. I was 13 at the time. I picked these up at Sol Neff's a Pgh area sporting store when they were going out of business I think in the late 80/90's. Found some waxed shotgun shells as well as some brass 12 gauge shotgun shell hulls. How times have changed. Reason I found them I was reloading some 32 Winchester Specials.

Funny you should mention this as I was rooting through my reloading bench (cabinet) and found some 303 Savage "Savage " ammo. Probably from sometime in the early 1960s. My first deer rifle was a model 99 in 303 Savage which I bought used while in high school.

It was not that long ago, maybe 3 years, that I finally finished off a box of Remington Express 12 gage that had the words "New Plastic" in white letters on the hull of the shell. They had been stores in a dresser drawer at my dads from my high school days.
They all went BANG.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
