A wise man at my club said something along the lines of "What does it matter, I'll never be able to replace it, no matter how good it shoots."

I took it to mean, shoot it, enjoy the results, post pictures and rest easy knowing that nobody can easily challenge your results.

I think I’ll shoot one box and keep the other for collection purposes

Shoot it unless you have a personal collection or know someone that collects the stuff.
I have a cache of Sears 6 56613 that sells for around 25.00 a box to collectors. Gave one to an old cooter at the range when he told me about it. He bought me a soda as thanks.

Stuff shoots really good. and I have several cases. Listed the stuff on the gun auction sites once and got no real interest.

So I just keep shooting the stuff.

If ever a collector wanted to buy it all for 15.00 a box I would just be replacing it with new Eley or Lapua.

When was the last time you saw Ted Williams name on a box of ammo.

As a side note is the zapper you found made in Korea or Mexico?

This use to be the go to ammo for many a rabbit hunters in my circle of friends.

I believe it’s Korea. Im away from my house for a week so I’ll have to double check when I get back. It is the 38g hollow point variant.

I haven't had any PMC ammo in a long time, but as I recall, Zapper shot pretty well, just like most of the PMC .22 ammo did. Seems like their ammo always fired on the first pull of the trigger, too...

In my guns PMC Zapper shot very well. I might not use it for random plinking.

You have a find there then. The Korean stuff is very consistent.

But if only two boxes shoot and enjoy it.
