    Since you've seen a box of Remington 22LR ammo like this? It's old enough that it doesn't have a Zip Code with the address on the box! Ammo looks fine, but it'll probably go with the 3rd string's practice team in my line-up.......

    Yup. I've seen guys pay good money for vintage ammo. Even empty boxes.

    Ooohhh, don’t let that addiction start! I’ve seen $275 boxes of 22. The artwork on the European box was absolutely beautiful but I couldn’t bring myself to buy it.

    It might actually run better than some modern Ammo. QC was better and word has it that the Ammo was a little hotter

    Darren, looks like you've got a few boxes of this yourself! I've got 3.

    I actually traded a brick of modern ammo for a brick of it. Quality is good and it shoots fine. When the last run on 22 occurred, you could buy ‘old ‘ ammo for the same or less than modern stuff, and it was easier to find! I stocked up again and bolstered some of my vintage collection.

    I'm probably not alone but I've still got some hard plastic boxes of Remington High Velocity .22 ammo with TG&Y price tags on them......$2.09 per 100.

    I have several bricks of that and the Winnie Super X yellow box. I blew through a box car load of it when I was a kid.

    What do I hear for an opening bid? LOL
