Any idea how old these are??

Some shells I have. Just wondering how old they are and if I should try them or not.

Re: Any idea how old these are??

I have a full box minus one and i think I did shoot that one now that I think about it. Price on the box is $4.20.

I am not 100% sure I fired the missing one or not.

Re: Any idea how old these are??

Never heard or saw Browning brand ammo before. Probably some collector value. Of course it may be worth a case of beer or two on bets. I have some 22 rf ammo in blue and white boxes labeled Smith and Wesson and the bottoms of the cases are stamped S&W. Won two cases of beer with those of course the other guy already had one or two too many when he insisted there was no such thing and made the bet.

I never really considered they had much value was just curious about them.

If someone on here is a collector and interested I would give them a fair price but they would have to pick them up. I was actually more interested in shooting them.

They are late 60's early 70's. There were several numbers, 35 power, 45 power,60 power, etc. I don't know what the number meant. The paper ones bring $40 for a full box, plastic $25 or so.

These are plastic.

If anyone is interested in them that collects these type of things let me know, otherwise I will use them like I would any other high brass shell

I would use them. Couple years ago I used a box of Federal magnum shotshells my grandfather gave me for a 20 gauge. They had a picture of a duck on the box, and had lead shot. I foget teh dram eqiv of the charge, but I do recaul they we 1 1/4 oz of shot. Those darn things kicked harder than my 12 gauge.

Re: Any idea how old these are??

While cleaning out my dads house in 2008 I found a few full boxes of Remington 12 ga high brass marked "Remington Express New Plastic".... I think these were from the 1960's. They worked just fine. Maybe they were valuable to collectors but the rabbits and phesants did not notice.

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