I just found this ammo in a storage space. Anyone know what is is? Maybe a scatter shell for game?

I also found some old pointed-tip ammo with some hollow point ammo. I'd say unusual for today.

Some fairly useless shotshells.

They produce fairly useless circular patterns.

People do buy them, though.

Possibly training ammo, or wax bullets for indoor use?

No shake sounds. It's from an old box which I forgot about 30 years ago.

I am looking and making notes on my old ammo since the ammo prices have more than doubled in three months. I have 1200 rounds of .38 Special with a good supply of .357 magnum and .45 ACP. I have a good supply of .22LR.

I am a little short of 9mm for my S&W Shield. I had just bought the gun on sale and failed to buy a good supply of ammo.

I am good on rifle ammo. My best rifle is a Marlin in 35 Remington (perfectly scoped) with the new current 200 gr FTX ammo. It hits hard.

All the wax bullets I am familiar with are similar to wad cutter loading in shell, Those look to be a shotshell to me. I had some # 9 shot for barn rats and we could not hear them rattle. My vote goes for shotshell.

Pull one down, and look at what's inside...

They look like the older Speer shot shell cases made for hand loaders. I have a few lying around myself. The newer versions are a blue transparent case. Shot Capsule
