    I saw this today while cruising around Cabelas, and just HAD to pick it up. Nice little commemorative wooden box with 50 rounds of Winchester Service Grade 230gr "GI Ball" ammo inside. $22.99 on the shelf...

    Anyone else picked one of these up? :cool:

    I have shot a box of those, it's good stuff, but 99 9/10% of my ammo starts here...

    Perfect for anyone who wants to pay nearly .50 cents a round for ammo. :)

    I had one of those cans but could not bear to open it, so I sold it. :)

    Um... 6 3/4" long x 4" wide x 2 1/4" deep. Nice little box, dovetail joints, etc... would make a neat little box for the grandkids one of these days.

    You paid about $12.00 for that box...…. If the box however, is what you really wanted then it may have that much value to you. :)

    I don't understand some of the rather "heavy handed replies"... I saw it on the shelf at Cabela's and thought to myself, "Hey isn't that kind of cool?" and so I bought it. So what! The box will make a neat little storage item for the grandkids.

    Sheesh... :confused:

    Ok point taken my bad. Just always look at the bottom line on ammo and know this is not just ammo.

    Box is cool...
    I think its cool....
    Who cares how much you paid for 50 rounds of ammo...
    I would buy that box for 12 bucks for my kid or grandkid any day....

    I'm sure if you were looking for a bargain on ammo you would not need help....

    Looks very cool. I believe it’s even a different load than their current stuff, and is loaded exactly to WW2 specs. That would be fun to shoot through a period correct gun.

    I had a guy offer me $9.00 for an empty box that said Black Talon I just asked him how much he would pay for a full box. He just gasped at me. I paid under $10.00 for the full box. What are they worth now? Dang I just shoot them, they are cheaper than todays ammo.

    I’ve seen black talon ammo go for quite a bit...like $40 a box! I used to carry black talon .357 that my dad had stashed from when it was on shelves. Good stuff!

    No it is the same USA White Box. Pressure is pressure for the 45 acp. Powders used during WWII are non existent now. 230 gr Ball is just that.

    I’m just going off Winchester’s ammo. It’s not the same FPS as WWB. They claim period correct load, good enough for me.
