Winchester box


#1

1994 special edition but no date on the round. How do I tell then 1994 from 1993 or any other year?


#2

Vlad–The 1994 Special Edition .22 WRF was the only year it was produced. The last normal production was about 20 years earlier. I have not seen the cartridge from this Special Edition, so I can not tell you how it differs from the last production in the 1970’s. If you give me a detailed (case material, cannelures, headstamp, bullet) description of the round I will point out anything different about it. I do NOT need diminisions.

Well, here are 2 quick scans. The tip is flat. Is this stuff rare?

Vlad–Ok, that is special headstamp just for the Special edition. The normal headstamp was SUPER-X. All the other features look the same as the older producton stuff from the 70’s.

Shooting quanties are getting harder to find, but I would not call it rare. I saw a gunshop just a couple of years ago that had about 50 boxes of Remington brand (U headstamp) still on the shelf. This was 1960’s era stuff. It is, and never was, a hot seller.
