    Old Shotgun Shells

    Found some of these if anyone is interested/collects. 15 papers and some old plastics. Still look like you could shoot them too.

    Cool to see this ammo that dates from around the time I got my first shotgun in the 1980's

    Those shells represent the transition from CAC loading papercase, then plastic, then Eley / Stanley plastics after they took over the CAC site.

    Go and shoot them , and savour the smell of history. They arent rare so no harm will be done shooting them off.
    Be more involved and less impressed.

    They may not be rare but they are still collectible.
    I'd offer them up for sale and spend the money on new shells if I didn't have an interest in collecting them.

    Much rather they went to someone who collects, I've shot my share of 12g so firing for the sake seems a waste.

    They will be more interesting to collectors if they have the original box.
