I have a box of Winchester Ammo and it is blue, has Winchester in red letters and white background and Non-Mercuric Staynless in Red on a white background.  I suspect it is pre war because the address is Winchester Repeating Arms Co. New Haven Conn USA.  I know that if I had Giles book I would not have to ask, but hope you can help or point me to any location on this forum where there are pics of pre and post war ammo.
