Here, but occasionally There.
Most of my hunting time was in the late '50's and early '60's. And, being in a small town, we didn't have such a thing as TG&Y, so our ammo was purchased at the local lumber yard/hardware store, and I can't remember pricing then. Besides, my "future brother-in-law" was dating my sister and pretty much kept me in ammo.

Texas mandated non-toxic (steel) shot in 1984.
Federal Hi-Power shells were $3.49 in 1974, what we normally shot. 7-11 sold those Remington shotshells and .22LR.
They were no longer going to sell ammo and had marked the shotshells $1 box and .22 $050. Spent every dime I had.
I went home, Dad gave his checkbook, bought every 16 ga and .22LR in town. Spent close to $500, Mom wasn't happy.
15-18 cases of shotshells and 2-3 cases of .22.

Federal still rolls paper hulls for the clay games if you can get your paws on them. Hands down the nicest and softest shooting stuff I ever broke a bird with. Wish I was good enough to get them sent to me like the fella I knew back when.

I remember seeing boxes like that from the late 70s maybe?
They were blue plastic 12 ga shells with 00 buckshot and were called Peters Blue Whistlers.
Looks like whoever owns Remington ammo now still offers blue paper shells.
