Old Centerfire Ammo box



Log in to see fewer ads
This follows a similar thread in the .22 Ammunition forum, a place to show centerfire boxes. Since I started the rimfire thread with a Canadian box, I thought I would begin this one with a Canadian box also.



Released in 1980 by Canadian Investments Corporation, it commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Alberta Diamond Jubilee. The rifles were made by Winchester, and the Diamond Jubilee Model 1894 was the first in this series.

The Old Western Scrounger is known as having loaded ammunition available for many obsolete cartridges. These came in colorful boxes with interesting graphics. This one was made on contract for Winchester when the M1895 Limited Edition rifle came out.






Federal has always been a big supporter of handgun silhouette shooting. This is a box of new unprimed brass for the 7mm TCU, the most popular silhouette cartridge of all time. 7mm/.223 is the original designation of this round before Thompson Center started making barrels for it. The cases are fully formed 7mm TCU, ready to load and are nickel-plated.


Here is the headstamp. IHMSA stands for International Handgun Metallic Silhouette Association.

Looks like a normal Rem-UMC .25 ACP box. Notice in the closeup of the headstamp picture, the entire headstamp is shown in a mirror image.

Special match ammo to commemorate the famous Marine sniper, Carlos Hathcock.







Notice the small, impressed "B" on the primer, signifying a "Benchrest" primer was used.


The introduction of the Winchester 94 in .375 brought about some special ammunition to go with it.







First issue box for the .17 Remington.

A few of the older boxes I have.I think the last in the brown box is WW-2 German 8mm.

These surplus .30-06 boxes were loaded with French cartridges from the 1950's.

For a short-lived cartridge, they used two different headstamps.
