I think the reasoning behind the box's artwork is "nostalgia/appeal", rather than an indication of the product's intended use.Why not put an elk or bear on the boxes? They’re pretty cool too….
You’d think a manufacturer would put a picture of something relevant to the taking on any box of ammo they produce. Yeah, hunters are gonna probably see that it’s a lead shot (wives/girlfriends might not know) but in the end it’s really about a picture not representing what a product is to be used for, cool or not.
If the price is even close to reasonable I buy all can. People that think prices will come down much are delusional. The price of nearly everything, not just ammo is up. People need think about how much less their dollar is worth compared to 2 or 3 years ago.So do you buy shells when you find what you want or wait until prices may come down.
I’m buying when I find it!
They have a forever shelf life.
Atwoods Farm & Ranch stores here in Oklahoma have had them for several months @$9.99/box of 25Cool. Those aren't even on Federal's website, that I can find, must be really new.
The first box of shotshells I ever saw, back in 1954 or so came in a box much like that. The box also had a drawing of a dapper young man in a British driving cap holding a side-by-side. He might have even been wearing a necktie, if I remember correctly.
