Default Well

Because of the guns listed on the ammo box i was thinking it may be pretty old.
Anyone care to guess?
Its a full box

Early post WWII: 1946 - 1954. “Olin Industries” was used first in 1944, but they were focused on military ammunition during the war and I don’t believe that style box (red/white/yellow) was used pre-war. Winchester ammo boxes were marked “Olin Mathieson...”, starting in the mid-1950’s.
