    Default old brick of remington .22 ammo...

    i just picked up a green and white box (500) of .22 kleanbore high velocity LR ammo.
    box looks old, says "dupont" on it too.
    is it worth anything, or should i just send it downrange one at a time?

    There are guys out there that collect ammo. That is old enough that someone is probably interested in having it. I would trade a carton and a half if it's in good shape. But you are probably not in FBKS. New ammo will most likely give better performance anyway. Just salt it away for a rainy day and buy some new stuff.

    looks like it goes to the boy... cheaper than buying new stuff.

    Reminds me of seeing and old box of SUPER-X .22 shorts for 22.00 bucks at a show, I tried to sell a whole case of this ammo to the same guy for 10.00 a box. No takers. Funny how well the case shot. To think my dreams went up in smoke as I had .60 per box in this deal.

    Suggestion, Dump all the ammo into a container (Tupper-wear), and but the little boxes back into the big box, and but the big box on a shelf as cheap classic art for your viewing pleasure.

    OK AGL, you have sparked my interest? I have always wondered just how effective the little 22LR could be - sounds like it is used for bou hunting ?
    I was on a bou hunt in Quebec some years back and the camp helpers would pop a few swimming across the lake with 22's but I never really spoke with them about it.
    I assume all head shots from side or behind?
    No body shots?
    Just curious if anybody with experience wants to share????
    Thx.

    EEhhemmm...no go on the 22lr bou hunting, unless your way up north chasing them in a boat.

    AGL, maybe I'll run into you in the mountains chasing bou this fall. I'll be the guy sucking wind, no doubt. It'd be nice to run into the resident POT STIRRER!!! LOL

    BTW, When is the season open for the "locals"?
