    Stickdp, Keep all of them. They don't burn gas and they don't eat grass, so keep them dry and your Son can sell them in 20 or 30 years for a lot more than they are worth now. I'm still sitting on some old Winchester AA's in the yellow and black boxes and a few boxes of Eclipse trap loads from the early 80s. Larry

    It seems that the Actives with the Puerto Rico logo were made way back when the Olympics were held in Puerto Rico. Not sure about the date, but it was a long time ago.

    Anyway, I am thinking about posting some old shotshells in boxes and trying to sell them later on. How do you guys ship them? I noticed the post earlier to use only USPS for shipping, but their site says they don't accept guns and ammo, ( guess just use them if all you sell is t- shirts and pens) but when I order primers and powder, I notice it is not sent USPS.

    The best box you have is the Winchester. It's collectible.

    You can ship the boxes by UPS at no extra charge ie no haz mat fee.

    Those Activ hulls sure reload nice. I have a drum full of once fired hulls, and am gonna get them loaded this coming winter. They go through the press so smoothly.

    Russ, you are so right, Activ's don't require resizing and they go through my PW like they were greased.
