    Wads are not collectible but the shell boxes, if full w/ original shells, would have some collector interest. Are the Mark V paper or plastic shells?

    All the Mark 5's I shot at ducks were plastic, I never saw any in paper.

    The mark V was the first plastic that Win had . I have reloaded some of them 25 times.

    I believe the Xpert Mark V shells were paper to start with.

    I barely remember paper hunting shells, Dad bought mine and they were always Federal. They were $2.16 a box at Economy Boys.

    Thanks, IMR. You saved me the trouble of looking as I'm relatively sure I have some around here also.
