Nobody has any information about this firm? Unusual for this forum. They were an American company and likely in business for a few years, with an actual serial commercial production of 9 mm Luger ammunition.
I wanted to write a short article about them, but do not have enough information to make it worth my time or the reading time for anyone else.
this box would have to date from 1950 or after since it includes the Colt Commander in the list of appropriate weapons, and before the S&W Model 39, which is NOT listed, came on the commercial market in 1955.
Edit: After writing the above, I remembered that I had a book on Ingram entitiled "The Mac Man Gordon B. Ingram and his Submachine Guns, by Frank Iannamico and Donald G. Thomas, published in 2011 by the Chipotle Publishing LLC, of Henderson, Nevada. It had a little more information. Confirmed was that Gordon Ingram did begin the Standard Cartridge Company, that it was a very small company with ammunition loaded on a dozen or so manually operated reloading presses primarily by women, and the company’s goal was to supply hard to get ammunition. The list of cartridges is only three that have evidently been confirmed, 9 mm Parabellum, 8 mm Nambu, and .30 Mauser. I was not aware of the .30 Mauser, but I have many specimens of the 9 mm prototypes and production cartridges, and one specimen of the 8 mm Nambu, so they are definitely confirmed.
I was momentarily excited in that they had a picture of the same box I have, so I thought initially that it was a second known box of the same exact design. Unfortunately, I then noticed that I was the one who supplied the picture of the box, the same exact one pictured above. Since I know Don Thomas, it is not surprising, but I cannot recall my tiny bit of involvement there. No matter, Don is a great guy and could use anything I sent him, with or without accreditation. I sure he asked me about it for the book.
The section on SCC, pages 70 and 71 of the book, seem to say that Ingram’s interest in starting a cartridge company became reality c.1955. The little information I had gives that as the closing date, with the factory beginning in 1950. That information would square with the absence of mention of the S&W Model 39 on the back-label of the box, but the book seems very well research and written, so am simply not sure now about the actual dates of operation of SCC. The corporate address for SCC was in Van Nuys, California, but the production, which could have taken place in a relatively small building, was likely in Pasadena, the address given on the box.
If anyone has a .30 Mauser round from SCC, I would like details of it. It likely would be unheadstamped, with a nickel-cup Boxer primer, and a chrome-plated (not nickel), very smooth and bright finished projectile.
