    My grandpa had this random bag of .410 shells...are they reloads?
    The primer and primer cup (?) make me think they are...but I've never looked at .410 shells or older stuff like this so maybe they're original. Thoughts?

    The crimps look good and not burned. Maybe factory or only loaded once. The brass on a few of them looked to be resized incorrectly - I'm seeing around the brass. Also, the primers don't look fully seated like factory. But, these look old and manufacturing not what it is today. I'd cut them open and save the shot. Toss the powder in the flower bed or yard, and pop the primers with a hammer and then toss in the trash.

    Shotgun Shells in the past did not use the now standard 209 primer, different brands used different sizes

    Did older shot shells have rings around the brass like those shown on a couple of shells? I've never seen that before.

    Thanks. I defer to those with knowledge of older shot shells. I'm a Remington STS reloading guy :D
