    Just some boxes of .22's I have over the years. Nothing particularly collectable. Click image for larger version

    "Canuck" brand, never heard of that one. Made in Canada, I presume? Probably extra lethal on muskrats, spruce grouse, and tourists from Buffalo.

      They are still cool Jim, some names and boxes from the past. Like Matt I like the Canuck brand .

        "Canuck" is a slur nickname for Canadians and was a shot shell brand. Quite popular in the northern border states. Best I remember, Canuck was top notch and well regarded ammo in the 60's and 70's.

        The green & red Rem boxes and the Win "Super X" boxes are collectibles!

          Old ammo boxes are cool. Old ammo boxes full of ammo are more better.

              The red and green Remington box in the lower right hand corner isn't full, but it's still "collectible"!
              Well...to me anyway.

                    I have been taking inventory and consolidating. Just realized I have 8 box of .340. That is enough for 30 lifetimes. In other areas it looks like I am covered. If something does happen on the 17th this could turn into a hot one.

                      What's going to happen on the 17th? Isn't that National Bootlegger's Day?

                          I've got 2 boxes of these. The other has been broken. It's not a full box.
                          I know where I got them. I have no idea WHERE he got them, but he was a military armorer and was an armorer for a state police unit.

                            I have somewhat of an assortment too. The best old , not made anymore, rounds I have are several bricks of Winchester Stingers. They are noticeably faster than regular 22 shells. My Son-In-Law tricked out a Ruger 10-22 for our pararie dog hunt a couple years ago. He used the Stingers and killed over 400 pararie dogs with them. I wish they made them still they gave the 22 quite a boost.

                              I only have one box of Stingers left. I never had good luck with them. The fastest now is the Aquilia Interceptor .22lr 40gr bullet. The go about 1470fps if I remember. Expensive, about $6.00/50 a few years ago. Not recommended for handguns.
                              A lot of the 'high speed' .22 ammo get the speed by reducing the weight of the bullet. Aquilia is a full 40gr bullet. They use the priming method used by Ely for the U.S. Olympic team.
                              Stingers are made by CCI.
