    The way it used to be when you bought bullets.

    Back in the day.
    I remember loading old bullets that came from these kind of boxes when I was young.~Muir


    The writing says "218 Bee, 46 Mush"

    I used to buy mine by the 100 or 500 in polythene bags but only Remington and Winchester were available around that time.
    They didn't have the selection of points either, they were all PP = power point, in todays terminology = soft point.
    The only hollow points that I can recall were 9mm pistol but I can't remember who made them.

    That’s nothing!

    When I were a lad we had neither plastic nor cardboard and bullets were cast from lead filched from school roof. Couldn’t afford gas so had to slip lead pot into heating boiler when Old Coke the Caretaker wasn’t replenishing it. School desk still bares scars from spillages when illicitly pouring into hand-made mould during Latin.
