    Hey all,
    I have always wondered what the box looked like that the old black AAs came in........They were before my time, and could someone post a pic of the box? Thanks! -Powderburn

    That's not fair. An entire, unfired box of Blacks? Geeze. I've never seen anything but a few empties and that was 15 years ago.

    The 4 box carrier that Winchester gave away at the Grand in 1970 matches these boxes. Anybody have any extra boxes they would part with I would be interested. I am making a display and need to have 3 more boxes to fill up the 4 box carrier. Thanks Paul

    I used them at 27 yard years ago.

    As mentioned above, they kicked like a mule because the wad did not absorb much recoil.

    I may even have some of the wads.

    Did you notice the Nickle Shot on some of the Black AAs? A streak of silver under the lights at night.

    I remember the nickle plated shot at the Grand when they had the wobble trap events. I still have some of them.
