    30 Carbine Sears ammo

    Hello fellows.



    Who did this Sears ammo? Any experience with them? They're worth it?

    Regards

    I don't know if it would be great ammunition or not but I always thought Winchester made it for them.that ammo has to at least be from the 1960s or 70s because Sears hasn't sold ammo for a very long time. It's neat to see the old graphics on that box

    If I read that price tag right - $4.69 would be about 23.5 cents/round. The "good 'ol days" for sure! - Bob

    You're right, but if that ammo was in dry conditions will work just fine

    I have half a box of the old Sears 38 special around here somewhere, this makes me kind of want to go shoot it to see how it performs. If I remember correctly my box looks a little different from yours though. I don't know if they had different graphics for different calibers or just different graphics for different years but since yours is a complete box, I would keep it

    1st, I'd make sure that the Carbine I was shooting works ok with lead.
    Be a shame to find out your carbine doesn't like lead and only have a partial box of vintage Sears ammo.

    Hola Carlito,

    Do you mean that my carbine may don't perform as should or like the soft point?

    I'm suggesting sell it to collectors and buy new ammo.
