Default Vintage ammo.

Can anyone guess the approximate age of this ammo?

Around 1962. I saw a full box in new condition sell for $6.50.

Thanks for the responses!
What about this one? I believe it's from a Western Auto.

Made by Federal was the manufacturer of retail giant Montgomery Ward's and Sears’s house brands as well as Western Auto's Revelation line.
The only uniformity in packaging is the Consumers Products Safety Commission's "Warning: Keep out of the reach of children" caveat which appears on every box of ammunition produced since 1962.

Thanks everyone for this information!
I found this ammo in the drawer of an old rolltop desk, while helping carry it out a house. It was my mother's uncle's desk that she inherited when he passed.
