Hey all, found this 30-06 round in some ammo my Dad gave me a few years ago just found them on a shelf while doing a little inventory. Does anyone know who manufactured them and how old they are, any information would be appreciated. Thanks
Sears sold ammo up until the early 1980's. Early on was a
Western/Winchester/Olin sourcing. Later Nickle primed stuff was coming from Federal. The federally sourced stuff began something around the early 1960's, I believe.
So early 1960's to something like 1982-83. Would likely be a 180gr bullet, but think there were some 150's also.
I know a lot of that was covered in a book on the 30-06 by a guy with the last name of Punnett.
