    I think it was S&W after they bought Alcan,but maybe Federal as they loaded for many house brands--Western Auto--Gambles--Sears-- Wards--etc. Also could have been C.I.L.-- Somebody will know for sure. Ross

    Those shells were made by Winchester at the Olin facility. The Browning shells were rated by power rating not Dram equiv. They had like 45 power & 60 power
    stuff. Confusing as heck, they had charts in the stores here so you could figure out what you bought/needed. I still have a box of 16 gauge shells & a box of .243 rifle ammo by Browning. Colonel
