    Vintage Box Of Old HOT HOT Super Vel

    Oh Golly Gosh...How old is this box of hollow point "Flying Ashtray" ammunition?
    And I am older than that!
    I thought some of you younger forum members might enjoy seeing this photo of SUPER VEL vintage ammo.
    This was THE Kick A$$ .45acp Ammo of the day.
    And they still look like they were just made yesterday.

    Yep, reloadable. I only have this one box.
    As much as I am really wanting to shoot them all up...I think I'm going to just hold onto them for a few years & see how much it climbs in value. I remember it was fairly EXPENSIVE ammo back then.

    Thinking About It

    I am More Vintage than an old box of Super Vel.

    Super Vel went out of business in 1976 just FYI

    I think (way back when) the Secret Service used the 110 gr .357 Super Vel loading.

    Similar theme - here is a small selection of old .22 mostly - some is the old, old copper type cases - very corroded now and most will not fire. I have had some of these since early 60's.

    Just a bit more ammo history.

    QK, not sure if Super Vel was the nickel-plated .45 ACP factory fodder, either. I do have a box of 1970s vintage "Federal Match" .45 ACP with nickel-plated cases, though. At nearly $10 (when I bought it), I thought THAT was pricey!
