Default A .22LR Blast from the Past

My friend just found these in his Mom's house while cleaning out junk.

According to a post from shooters forum, these may be the precursor to Thunderturds.

They are probably around 45 years old and look pretty clean.

I actually still have a couple boxes of it, found it buried in the bottom of an ammo box, from the late 70's or early 80's along with a couple other brands.

I still have a bunch of them. Do not shoot the 22RF much anymore
A 30cal will reach out and touch them. A 50cal will kick their butt.

Mohawks were Remingtons cheap line of ammo
