R-P 9x19 UMC 150 years box


#1

This is a new box that I have not seen before. Obviously made in 2017 celebrating 150 years of UMC from 1867. I assume it is not for general sale. Can anyone shed some light on this box?

Cheers,

This box is showing up for general sale. I have it in both 9 mm and .40 S&W,
and there are at least three different boxes like it for 9 mm reflecting three different
loadings. I also have two advertising boxes like it, that are the same but about three
or four times the size. I don’t know what else there is to say about it that is not right on
the label - its is commemorating 150 years of Remington-UMC ammunition production.

Great guys! Thanks!

None of the big sporting goods chains in Atlanta stock ammo. It takes me about 4t5 min to get out to an ammo store so I almost never cruise these looking at the new ammo.

A really neat box. A Bonus is that I don’t think I have the headstamp variation in my collection!

Cheers,
Lew
