A bit over 3 years ago, I had a garage sale before we moved to Minnesota. I had a bunch of ammo for sale cheap. Today, I'm glad most of it didn't sell!

That’s a great collection ADC. With the price of .22 shells today, I’d start shooting them.

That's what I like about them for what I'll use them for.

Only thing better than lead would be copper plated lead. I love copper plated lead BB for predators, second choice is #4 buck in copper plated lead when BB can't be found.

I gave a collector friend a box of 12 gauge Winchester Western #8. Price on the box was $2.85.

x2- That stuff should still be made somewhere but I guess not
b/c I cannot find it.


Savell- I'd still shoot that (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman)!

I don't think #2 lead is even available since steel became mandatory ... even if it's listed on some manufacturers site, no one I can find stocks it.
Hornaday supposedly makes a nickel plated lead bb for coyotes, can't find that either.

I think you're right on that. I'd sure like to find some in .20ga! They used to make it when I was in high school, Remington Nitro Mag. maybe other brands too.

I managed to accumulate a few old boxes of ammo over the years also. Some of these I used in my younger days.

ADC, that is the exact shells that I love so much for vermin. Roger's sporting goods near me used to carry it, but they was told discontinued as well.

ADC, I got a box of those Monarcs that you have there. Mine I bought in the early '50 for 34 cents BUT one out of every three or four would not fire so I quit using them. When I came home from service 1980 I found that box, still of course some did not fire, I gave them to a friend who collects shell. Just wondering if you tried to shoot them and if they all worked......jk
