Traveling around Asheville today browsing the local gun stores and met a guy who I used to work with at a pawn shop. We were catching up with who's doing what now while he was showing me the rifle selection. Our conversation turned to ammo (which I'm surprised a pawn shop had some in stock). He said they just received some older 22lr ammo. I bought one of each since I'm going to a outside firing range tomorrow.

Anyone shot these before?

The top one is from Canada (model RF-60) and the bottom is Western Super Match Mark 4:

I got a brick of this from my FIL. (Also Olin-Winchester Western Division) It's some he's had for who-knows-how-long. One of the 50-rd boxes had a 99 cent price tag still on it, if that gives you some idea of it's age.

I've shot a hundred rounds of this brick so far and it all shoots good.

I dont know if I would shoot that, not due to it being bad or anything but there are quiet a few ammo collectors out there that might be interested in buying them from you for a nice penny. just my .02 worth

Thanks Guys!

There's about 26 boxes of the Western left at the store and around 10 boxes of the CIL. I've seen collectors selling it for $12 a box for the Western. I will shoot it the Western but the CIL looks rough, like a dry wax.
