    Cool ammo found in my gun room

    I spent a couple hours going through my ammo in my vault tonight and found some cool stuff. First was some 20 gauge shells. They appear to be paper hulled slugs branded as Sears ammo. It is obviously old but I have no idea how old it is. I think it has no collector value since there is no box. Unless anyone thinks differently, I may just shoot it. I also have a few all plastic shells. The ink is smudged but I think the brand is called Activ. Same deal..

    Next is Hornady Zombie ammo. This is in 7.62x39mm. I wonder if it works.

    Next is some Remington 9mm+P+ that was made for an agency and then found to be too hot for handguns.

    This is Hornady Vector. They are like tracer rounds but I don’t believe they are incendiary. I have no idea if they work. They have to be at least 25 years old.

    Speaking of old, this is 303 British with headstamps of 1918. It is in a machine gun belt. I wouldn’t be surprised if this 102 year old ammo fired just fine.

        That +P+ in red looks pretty cool.

        I'd keep the paper shells. You won't find anything like that anymore.

          The Sears rounds are worth about a buck apiece at a gun show. Cool relics.

            Current production 20g slugs are a buck apiece. So they have no collector value.

                I used to buy them at Edelman's, for like $4.99 a box.. I still have a 5-gallon bucket of hulls that might get reloaded some day.

                  The +p+ are pretty cool I have a couple boxes of Wincher Ranger +p+ In 9mm I gave a box of 38 +p+ to my BIL ,he said he almost broke his thumb shooting the first round it was so hot. I carry them in a pocket 38 instead of buying a 357. Yard

                      They were a very popular shell for reloading hunting loads as they had more space than other brands.

                        Not sure how or where I got this - maybe from my dad when he moved south. Anyway I have a box with a couple of shells - no idea on age. 12 gauge, paper hull, Olympic made in Poland
