Can anyone give me an approximate date if when this ammo was made?

I'd guess 70's….. Based on not much. Is there a price on it?

towboater 11-17-2013 05:18 PM

That would be my guess also.

It could be from the 60's. I'm too lazy to look it up right now. Does the box have the "Keep out of the reach of children" warning? (that started in 1962)

It does. .

There is no price tag on it.

There should be a lot number and a date code on one of the flaps. Might be inside the flap or on the part that tucks in.

I have NO idea, but I wonder: What does the point look like?

Same stuff?


There is an empty box for about $6 on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/vtg-empty-ammo-box-50-Winchester-Western-44-Magnum-Super-X-Hollow-Soft-Point-240-/111175694751

That is super dangerous ammo there, I have the equipment to dispose of it properly so nobody gets hurt. PM me for details on where to ship it. :D

When these were made there was very little quality .44 Mag. ammo available. These are Circa 1960s Winchester Lubaloy bullets. After shooting a box of these shooters would spend a day removing lead from the barrel. These were famous for leaving "strips" of lead in the bores of handguns. :eek:
I think they sell to collectors for around $20 dollars a box. :rolleyes:
