I SHOT UP A LOT OF THIS STUFF BACK WHEN IT WAS NEW ON THE MARKET IN THE MID 1970’s. SORRY I DON’T RECALL THE EXACT YEAR.

Should be late 70’s or very early 80’s for an original Watkins-Glen addressed box (the original Hydra-Shok company). Federal bought them in the 80’s and made it their own brand.

The U.D.L. was what they called the “Ultimate Defense Load”. The other types were the U.P.L. “Urban Police Load”, the “Copperhead”, and the “Scorpion”. They seem to all come in red or white boxes of 50rds like the one you show.
