Early Winchester .45-75 box


Here’s a new acquisition I wanted to share - an early .45-75 WCF box. Based on Gile’s & Shuey’s One Hundred Years of Winchester Cartridge Boxes, the lack of a mention of Anson Mill’s cartridge belt on the tan 'Winchester Primer No 2 1/2 dates it to 1880 or earlier.


Is that a listing of all the possible powders loaded that is on the bottom of the box?


They are the 6 powder brands that were recommended for reloading. Here’s the entire label.
