At an auction I bought a bunch of brass and some of it is very old and I wonder if anyone could give any feedback on it. I'm not sure what I've got, age and quality wise!
The first one is new, unprimed boxes of 20 each, Herters .222 mag. The box says "Herters Ultra Precision International Match Grade Cases", "Guaranteed Worlds Finest Quality", "Made in Sweden by Precision Craftsman"
Next is new unprimed brass, Remington brand, 244 Remington.
Last is once fired brass, box says "Western Cartridges, 30 Springfield 1906 Center Fire HAND LOADED Match Ammunition Lubaloy Non-fouling bullets, For Single Loading Only"
That is the front of the box, the back says "loaded by hand with smokeless powder, and Lubaloy bullets. Adapted to 1903 Model Springfield Rifle chambered for '06 cartridges and other Bolt Action arms chambered for this cartridge."
No where on the box does it say what type or grain of bullet that was loaded in it. Also, they appear to be nickel plated, headstamped "Western 30-6-1906"
The primer is nickel plated color just like the brass. One of the boxes has handwritten in pen on it "1940". I am guessing that is probably the vintage of these?
How are the above three for reloading? Are they worth any more or less than modern brass?
