Enjoy Ted Williams’ Golden BBs!!!

Sort of related; I’ve heard that “golden BB” was slang amongst Vietnam vets for an enemy shot that would kill you, but I have no idea if that phrase came from these BBs, or if these BBs were named after that phrase; do you know when Sears started selling these?

The phrase was use quite a bit in the movie Air America with Mel Gibson. Staged about the [covert ] War in Vietnam.

I use to have years ago a 30-06 Ted Williams rifle from sears.
