Shown below are a few photos of some .45 auto and .38 special “Ultrashock”, which was the original prototype version of what later became “Omnishock”. The Ultrashock was mostly found in .38spl and I had not even heard of the .45 auto until I recently found a batch with 2 package types. The wooden box is very rare, and the Ultrashocks were eventually packed in MTM plastic wallets with sticker labels, and then later became Omnishock. The Ultrashocks all have steel screws in the projectiles and something appears to have been put into the screw head but I can’t make it out - little bits of something.
The label on the Wooden box is interesting, giving a name of “Ultra Shock Defensive Ammunition Co” out of La Canada, California.
The .38spl box:
I found my one wooden pack, and one plastic wallet of the .45 auto stuff on Gunbroker (paid too much for them), and these were probably sourced from this person on Calguns who likely had no idea what they had:
You never know what you’ll find on Gunbroker or the internet…
