I found these shotgun shell (http://www.ebay.com/itm/1960s-PETERS-209-Primer-TARGET-LOADS-Empty-CARTRIDGE-BOX-/310403483498) cartridges. (The ebay listing is for example purposes, I already have the ammo in my possession). I did a google search and there is not that much useful information. Has anyone seen or used this before? Are these vintage?

Used to be you could get these by the case from Big 5.. good shells, the "Blue magic" hulls were a compression formed hull that lasted at least 4-5 reloadings.. I used to reload them for a while and still have a small stock of them.. they were nice shells..

Interesting, I recently got a couple boxes through the Hey I Heard You Like Guns And My Grandfather Left These Behind Network of ammo suppliers. I think I'm going to give them to a friend with the same last name.
