Remington Highway Master loads


#1

Hello , I may have the name slightly wrong here but its something like Remington Highway Master loads , I am guessing they were metal piercing ammo for the Police , any ideas ???


#2

Do you have the box? If so, what is the Load Index number.
If you do not have the box, are they .38 Spl. or .357 Mag. and what is the exact headstamp?

6838 .38 SPECIAL 110 gr. “HI-WAY MASTER”, METAL PENETRATING KLEANBORE Last listed in 1965

If the Load Index number begins with an “R” it would date between 1936 and 1942.

NO, not rare at all. In fact quite common.

I recently picked up a .38 Special cartridge while at the recent C.C.C.A. show in La Palma, CA.

The bullet is a 110gr. very hard lead RN loaded in a nickel case. H/S: (PETERS 38 SPL).

A black/white photocopy of the box was included with the cartridge:

PETERS
(letter “P” in circle) HIGH VELOCITY (“DU PONT” in oval circle)
38 SPECIAL
HIGHWAY PATROL
110 GRAIN METAL PENETRATING BULLET
50 CENTER FIRE SMOKELESS CARTRIDGES
MADE IN U.S.A.

Unfortunately, there’s no product number available. If anyone happens to know what the product no. is, please post it as I’d like to include that number in my notes. Thanks.
