The majority of viewers wanted to see if this very old, Depression Era, box of 22s would still function. We put it to the test and were surprised they still worked, and worked VERY well. The quality and reliability actually seemed to surpass some rounds made today by the SAME company. As they say, they don’t make things like they used to. It was interesting how they used red brass instead of yellow brass as they do today. This was filmed at a proper gun range using redundant safety precautions.

“Will these 90 YEAR OLD 22 rounds STILL FUNCTION?” PROBABLY IN A BOLT ACTION. BUT IN A .22 REMINGTON AUTOLOADER… NOT SO MUCH. (notoriously strong bolt spring)
WHEN WE WERE KIDS, IT WAS OUR JOB TO KEEP THE OLD AMMO ‘SHOT UP”, AND, YOU NEVER HUNTED WITH THE “NEW STUFF”…..IF THERE WERE ANY OF THE “OLD” STILL STORED
THEY WANT YOU TO BELIEVE BY THIS VIDEO THAT “OLD AMMO” WILL FUNCTION PROPERLY IN TODAYS SEMI AUTOMATIC WEAPONS. IT WILL NOT. KEEP YOUR AMMO RECYCLED EVERY 6 MONTHS IF POSSIBLE………………….
STOP BUYING MANFACTURED AMMO, AND START RELOADING.
HAND ROLLED AMMO WILL KEEP LONGER…… AND IF LOADED WITH CARE AND ATTENTION, SHOOTS WITH A HELL OF ALOT BETTER ACCURACY………….
IF , WHERE YOU LIVE, THE HUMIDITY IS TRADITIONALLY OVER 50 %, BUY A DEHUMIDIFIER FOR YOUR RELOADING ROOM/SHED, ETC. ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE LOADING FOR STORAGE….IT ALSO PAYS TO USE SURGICAL LOVES FOR RELOADING FOR A SEMI AUTO……. AS IT HELPS YOU TO LEAVE NO TRACE BEHIND……
