Amazing "Super Speed" box 38spl


#1

I was amazed to find this expired listing from late December on Ebay which showed a Winchester “Super Speed” box (empty box) for 150gr metal piercing cartridges that sold for $191.00! Wow!

It dates from around 1935 and was the earliest type of this sort of metal piercing box as far as I know. The cartridge and headstamp for this type can be seen on page 305 (SU02-1) (vol 2) of Otto’s 38’s. I’ll link a copy of the box picture here so it will remain after the expired ebay listing link goes away in a couple months.
