    Yep .. ran across them this weekend.

    To bad I couldn't buy them cause I did a couple of years ago when Wally World had them on clearance but I did run across a couple of boxes this weekend in my miscellaneous stash of mismatched miscellaneous shells.

    Sure wish I had run across them again in a store.

    I have some Federal Paper High brass pheasant loads with a $2.35 price tag. I bought them in 1963.

    sure wish I could find some more at that price.

    Here's one for you all. Up until this last big spike, Dick's and Gander had AA or the top line Rems for what?, around $4.78 per box, case price? Maybe even a little less.

    These types of stores spoiled a lot of younger shooters with those prices. In 1978, Fed papers cost $80-85 per case. A real 20 box case. Four of us would buy 20 cases at a time from Leo's here in SW PA. AA's had to be close to that. I think I know the reason but how did Winchester keep the price of shells so close to that 1978 price for almost 35 years?

    There ya go. $3.70 a box when shot was $8.00

    From $3.70 per box then, to $4.25 per box a short time ago isn't a big jump over that time span. How did they do it?

    BTW, I purchased a Y model from them when they were going out of business. $320.00

    1963 prices to 2006 prices:

    $2.35 back in 1963 (box of high brass papers) = $15.47 in 2006

    $8.00 back in 1963 (bag of shot) = $50.67 in 2006

    $37.00 back in 1963 (20 boxes of AA's) = $242.61 in 2006

    $995.00 back in 1963 (new K32) = $6,551.01 in 2006

    $2000 back in 1963 (new truck) = $13,167.86 in 2006

    $.34 back in 1963 (gallon of gas) = $2.24 in 2006


    2006 prices to 1963 prices:


    $5.00 in 2006 (box of shells) is equal to $0.76 in 1963

    $50.00 in 2006 (bag of shot) is equal to $7.59 in 1963

    $100.00 in 2006(2 flats of shells or 1 old style case) = $15.19 in 1963

    $10,000 in 2006(new k80) = 1,518.85 in 1963

    $30,000 in 2006 (new truck) = 4,556.55 in 1963


    Still want the good old days????


    You paid way more for shells back then then now at the current prices. I guess that is why everyone liked to reload. Look at the price of a case of shells at today's value: $242.61 for 20 boxes (121.31 for 10 boxes)!!!

    Shot prices are relative to 1963. I bet powder, wads and primers are relative or better now then then.

    People just see the number and automatically think it was better then.

    Now... Car prices were better then but I think emissions, safety, and amenities have a lot to do with it.

    Gas prices were better too but not that far off.

    Its called cost of living increases. You make more, things are more expensive but the value stays relative. We got more people, we got less resources. bottom line.

    But once again... the sky is not falling!!

    Dec. 21st 2012 AD is another story!!!!!

    I think after all this I'm going to just quit shooting entirely. Shells and such are just far to expensive now but everyone should wait for my return to the sport and to TS.com.

    I have decided that I am going to devote all my efforts and build me a working time machine to travel back in time to the days of cheap shot and cheap shells where I will load up all I can and bring them back threw time to the present day and I will begin shooting and posting again here on TS.com

    Does anyone want me to bring back any shot or shells for them?
