copper case 22lr?
I was going through some of my moms stuff and came across a box of .22 ammo, it appears to be a copper case which I thought was odd, anyone have any info about it? It has a diamond shape on the bottom. It was in a 100 rnd pack with 2 other types so I am not sure if it is the original box.

Without pictures it is hard to guess what you have. I have been a collector for years and it sounds like 1930'S Winchester ammo. Most all 22's before the mid 30's were copper cased. Please dont shoot this stuff and trade it to a collector. All old ammo has at least replacement value.

that looks like the diamond, only nothing is said inside. Thanks for the info, if its that old then it is some from one of my grandfathers and I cant get rid of it.
