Wincherter R.A.Co. 30-06 Springfield 180 Gr Silvertip Bullet Box

Any thoughts as to when this box was made? I know the “Division of Olin Industries Inc.” appeared about 1945 and in the mid 1950’s they started using “Olin Mathieson Chemical Corp.” (at least on 22 boxes which is about all I’m familiar with). I assume the A30 30 is a date code but I’m not sure how to read it.

Paul,

A30 30 should be, based on, as you stated, the presence of DIV OF OLIN INDUSTRIES, INC., March 30, 1950, with the A indicating manufacture at the Western Cartridge Co. plant in East Alton, IL.
