Default Old Ammo and boxes

This forum, as you know, is a great place and the members, with whom I have had dealings, are top notch.

A forum member posted that he had recently acquired a Winchester Mod. 94 in .32 Winchester Special. Like most of you, I collect firearms related items and just happened to have two "new" vintage boxes of Remington .32 Special Ammo.

I offered them to the member and sent them to him. This morning, in return, I received a vintage Super Vel cartridge box and reimbursement, which I did not request, for the mailing cost associated with the ammo. Thank you Hobbist!

Until today, I had never seen this type of Super Vel box. What a "find!"

A photo of a portion of my eclectic ammo/ammo box collection is attached. When you have a moment, show us what you collect.

I do but way too much to know for me.
I just accumulate it.

One of them would be like a kid in a candy store digging in my closet.

My collection ranges from 2.7mm to 30mm. Everything from rim fire, pin fire, cup fire, lip fire, teat fire and good old center fire. Very few full boxes tho. Mostly ones and 2's. Very addicting habit.
