Guess, Update

Someone recently commented and said I should have a 'guess the brand' ammo contest. I thought it'd be fun, so here you are, have at it.

The first person that correctly guesses the brand name on this box of shotgun shells wins one big 'atta-girl' or 'atta-boy.' If you show in person I'll give you a quick pat on the butt for good measure.

Remember, brand name.





This box is sitting on a high shelf in my shop. I took this picture yesterday. Any more exposure of the box would have given away its secrets. The shells are paper hulled. If you are over the age of fifty this should be an easy contest.

Update: We have a tie. The winners are Warlock and Russell1200 with an edge to Warlock Sundance.
They both knew the answer, J.C. Higgins sold by Sears. I was not asking for the store but the brand and Warlock is correct in that Federal manufactured the ammunition. Thanks to you both and, Atta-boy. You may redeem you butt slaps when ready....

  3. Sears. If I win instead of patting my butt would you please pat my shoulders? They're a bit sore from all the canning. Thank you.

  5. J.C Higgins based on color of the box. Made by Sears and Roebuck.

    They "made" shotguns as well, including a Ted Williams brand.

    I did make the suggestion. It was harder than I thought. But not as hard as guessing Spanish knock offs of American revolvers LOL.
