Winchester 5 round pocket paks


I picked up a pack of Winchester .243 CXP2 in a clear plastic packaging this afternoon at our local gun show from someone who brought it in with an assortment of other cartridges. He indicated he had this pack of cartridges for 10 years or so. I very seldom buy new ammunition, so I haven’t followed recent trends in packaging. Are the 5 round pocket packs as are in this package something that is still being produced, or was this a short-lived packaging method?


Guy, I checked the Winchester catalogs for the past 3yrs and the websit, see no mention of this packaging. I have seen it before but not in quite some time. Think it was short lived.
