 hi All, I have 5 sealed Winchester Staynless Primers No.116, small rifle. Pre Western in a vivid red, yellow, and blue box. I have 1 that is open, showing the wooden tray. They look great on my loading bench. It says Division of Olin Industries. I’m curious as to the production period of these primers. With todays prices, I wonder what they sold for new.

Hi Chuck, Very similar, but not quite the same. No patent number on the ones I have. Division of Olin Industries in place of Western Cartridge Company. I’m guessing a little earlier. Thanks for the reply

Your right.  Olin owned Western Cartridge Co. and then in 1931 Olin owned Winchester.  Winchester/Western.

Well the way things are going you might as well keep them and get to reloading with them (not joking either).

Sincerely,
