Got these with a trade not too long ago and I'm wondering if anyone knows what era (lol) they are from. My father (77) has been reloading most of his adult life and doesn't even recognize the packaging. I'm curious to know if anyone here recognizes them. And please don't tell me "they all go bang" and such. I'm not worried about using them, just curious how old they are.

Oops, you're right :)
Ok, found one like you posted, someone said early 70s. https://www.coltforum.com/threads/datin ... rs.381937/

Oh cool! That's very helpful, thanks!

Can't decide if I want to keep them as memorabilia or shoot 'em up.

Meh, I'm not much of a collector. I'll load them. Thanks again for finding that info!

If there was a t-shirt that looked like those boxes I would wear it.

Maybe load them but keep the box as memorabilia. Best of both worlds?

I would load them but keep the boxes. If you're just going to throw away the boxes, PM me and I'd gladly cover shipping and postage for them.

Know anyone with a cricket? I'm sure my wife could figure out how to copy it onto iron on vinyl and put it on a shirt with some time

I have some CCI from 74 and these are older than that. They do look to be in really good condition.

I have many boxes from that era and older and I have loaded and fired thousands. Still have a couple bricks of "Cascade" before the "cci" change. I don't use them for carry loads or precision loads but have also gotten no duds.

As long as they were stored cool and dry you're good!
