.22lr Remington Police Target Master - Thun


#1

This is a well traveled box. Ended up in the Thun munitions depot and made its way via Germany to Holland.


#2

Vlim–Just a guess, but it probably was a box left behind after some shooting match in Switzerland. The box dates from 1946-1952.


#3

It is interesting the assortment of ammunition you find with these Swiss Storage labels affixed to the boxes. I have a number of them in my own collection. Thanks for posting the picture of this one, the first rimfire one I have seen, but then I don’t pay much attention to RF boxes, since I don’t collect them.

Switzerland had a state monopoly on ammunition and propellants. Every single box of ammuntion or can of propellant that was to be sold in Switzerland had to go through this monopoly.
