    How old do you think these are?
    They were given to me 3-4 years ago.
    I'm thinking '80s-early '90s

    Judgin by the prices, Glug, I'd say you're close. Been a very long time since I saw bullets - any kind - under $10.00. IIRC, primers during Bush Jr. were around 3.00, but my memory isn't what it was.

    I started reloading when I bought my savage 204 in 2004 I started to stock up on primers then. Wish I would have stocked a few more instead of living up to the oiltrash persona. Looks like someone was getting gouged

    I started reloading so long ago( late 50's) that Winchester primers came in wooden trays and cost $5 per 1,000.

    AH !!!! The good old days when I was young and a know-it all.

    I started reloading in the late 70's, 1978 IIRC. I remember the first Hornady bullets I bought were in that packaging.

    I started in about 1968 and still have some Hornady bullets in the garage with that same packaging. Some 38spl and .270 bullets I think. Yep, getting old. :)

    Very cool guys, thanks! I really like the fact that the price tags say "grocery" on them!
