Old norwegian shotgunshell box.
I hope more than one contribution is not out of line !
This UMC box is not flashy but is the first in this caliber by them, with its “Mantled Bullet” call-out, and contains, as depicted in the art, 20 of the cartridges with the rare U.M.C. 30 CAL. headstamp.
Randy, it’s all good!! Since this is your specialty maybe you would appreciate this box too… it’s hard to nail down a single box to be a favorite so I of course support a few… anyway hope you like this one, got it from a buddy in Michigan last year.
By the way I have been on the lookout for a good box of .30-40 so if you notice anything out there I’d appreciate a shout out buddy!!
The cords for the empty packet snider shoot & empty packet Indian 476 are remake .
The blue packet is french 18mm M 1859 for carbine made in 1866.
I had met the Tom this box was named for & worked with the Tom who was his brothers son, so a favorite.
The others are self explanatory,
That box of M1906 .45 auto that Joegoforth shows is extraordinary, & Randy’s 30 Cal box is also pretty SUPER!!
Randy have you seen the box the cannurled cases came in?
I found this box label going through Hackley’s stuff. Model 1901 .30-cal cartridges with F A 1 03 headstamps. See page 99, HWS Vol. I Revised.
After your post of SFM Winchester cartridge boxes I decided to post this one. I have posted it before but it is one of my favorites.
It’s identified as a .40-60-260 Winchester. In reality it’s a .40-60-260 Marlin / .40-65-260 Winchester…The SFM drawing says it’s “Cartouche Winchester Cal-40-60 Fab. SF Pour Carabine Marlin”.
Hi, yes Paul it’s draw n° 9017, sometimes we can to be sure when we found one number on the label and on the draw The only other draw i have for this caliber is about WRA made 1892 . Bsrg, Dan
Edit for ad draw
Could you post a photo of the cartridge and headstamp?
No, as I do not have one.
A couple of nice early .30 LR:
A box of 6mm SAW tracer:
And a full box of 5.6mm Swiss Eiger:
I love that box of SAW tracers!
Wow…I have never seen one of these!!
Pete, that sure is a wonderful box
