Where do I find information on collectable ammunition? I helped clean my wife's grandfathers house and came across his stash of ammo. In relation to rimfire stuff it included 3 cartons of 22 shells, 2 Western Super-x LR Long Range Lubaloy coated (1 full and the other with 7 boxes in it) and the other is a Winchester Leader Staynless W with 9 boxes in it. The two Western Carton Boxes are in very good shape, the Winchester shows some wear on the corners. These cartans are all typical cardstock type boxes with an off white color with red and blue lettering. The 50 round boxes though are yellow with blue or red lettering.
It also included 4 individual 50 round boxes, 3 being Remington 22LR Kleanbore (typical green box) with all three having a stamping on the bottom N15M1 followed a another line with 5207 47. Ther is also a Peters High Velocity short hollow point silver and black box.
I will supply photos a little later. It also included around 6 boxes of 30-06 (or in some cases 30-GOVT'06 ammo and yes I know that they are the same
) and 5 boxes of 12 gauge and around 10 boxes of 20 gauge. I am guessing that they are all from the 40s to 50s.
It also contained an American Rifleman May 49, and a 1946 Shooter's Bible. It is missing the cover, but everything else is there, in fairly good shape. I am not sure why the entire bible is there in good shape without the cover, but it is.
So are there any websites out there or is there some where that I can find information on these items?
