I have been collecting these for quite some time. Over the last couple of years I have shared these with many of our members. Some of these labels are cropped and cleaned up already, most are not. I use New Print Shop to do this work but if a certain label interests you and you do not have the resources feel free to contact me and I'll help! Wink

Many of these cartridge box labels apply to Remington revolvers past and present (and there are "combustible" box labels here too) and many of them don't. But almost all of us have interest in other firearms Grin

I will add content about box construction, label material and so on as time goes by.

Also if any of you photoshop and improve these labels, please send me a file copy so I can add them to the photobucket pages!

Here is the link:

Most of them are in order of cartridge size (by number). Go to the bottom and click VIEW ALL to see them in their entirety.

Click and enjoy!

I was off work a few months ago recuperating from carpal tunnel surgery.  Had a lot of time on my hands.  Made this box for my 32 S&W Longs.  Modeled it after one of the same labels on your Photobucket album.  (With a few changes).  Thought you would get a kick out of it.

Howdy Hoof..... great idea to bring this subject back to life.  Cartridge boxes are one of my favorite things with this sport.
Thanks for posting your album.

Rusty Spurr,...that's a mighty fine creation of a .32 cartridge box you made. I like your creativity. By the way, that Woodchuck Lard lube hits mighty close to home with me. I'll bet it's slicker than ewe-lard,...hehe
Thanks for posting your photos.  Smiley

River City John,.......thanks for posting those nice labels. I like that Winchester .45 Cal picture box.
Good idea about making the 2-piece boxes with the string opener. Is that how they originally packaged them, with the string opener? Clever idea. I somehow thought that the purchaser just slit the seam with a sharp knife .

I made up some custom 12 ga boxes a couple years ago.  Just checked the gun cabinet here in my "rollin' bunkhouse" and don't have any of 'em with me.  Will get down home soon and will be able to post some pictures.   Was a fun project.  Gave a box full of brass shell loads to a freind for Xmas that year and he was more thrilled with the box than the shells . . .  Grin

Here are some "just for fun" ammo boxes I made for me and some friends. I plan to do more when I get retired and have more free time. I have a bunch of ideas...

Grin Grin And I hope you don't mind, I copied several of your full-frontal images of labels into my log of cartridge labels for future use.
Check out the three threads in the NCOWS Forum on 19th Century labels for sharing. The entire article has many contributions and tips for labeling in general, plus cartridge labels in particular. Be aware that the three threads are scheduled for deletion at the end of this month as they have been on that forum for over a year, so don't dawdle!

River

It is too bad that threads like yours can't be maintained for a longer period, they are WAY too useful to be lost...

just my thoughts..

thanks for your posts

Hoof Hearted, any chance you can give dates of manufacture on the 44WCF and 44-40 boxes?

Was reading somewhere that it was thought that the 44-40 or rather the 44 WCF boxes where split boxes during the 1870s and 1880s.

Anyone?

AFTER 1880 and BEFORE 1884
note no headstamp. Cartridge on far right is a 38.44. The case next to it is a 44-40 with a balloon primer pocket. The other two are from the box itself.

link is here: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.oldammo.com/Win4440.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.oldammo.com/february04.htm&h=513&w=1399&sz=92&hl=en&start=5&um=1&usg=__cVCsvLJ2dYJZo1rKSiIxujq64Z0=&tbnid=9YRqTmCITCyybM:&tbnh=55&tbnw=150&prev=/images%3Fq%3D44-40%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26hs%3DEXx%26sa%3DN

By the way, THANKS for the link! I have added many of those labels to the photobucket. Grin
