Anyone ever hear of "Super-X" brand ammo?

    My dealer gave me a box of .357mag "Super-X" with the S&W m66 I just talked him into selling me (his personal gun). He said it is pretty hot loaded stuff. They just came in a brown paper box with a printed band around it that just says "Super-X .357 magnum, handgun cartridges" on it. I am thinking they might be re-packs of the Winchester rounds, like Double Tap or something. Anyone ever know of anyone doing that?

    Super-X was a sub-brand of Win many years ago. However, it was in a bright yellow box not a plain brown paper. What are the markings on the bottom of the brass cases?

    Winchester still sells shotgun "super-x" ammo still IIRC, I think its new production. But I've never seen any handgun super-x

    I found a box of Western Super X 22 LR'S in one of my old ammo boxes last week. Must be at least 20 yrs. old, yellow box, made by winchester. Hope that helps!

    I got a box of Win 22.lr, that looks like the same box as above, at walmart the other day. Cheap, but neither my 22/45 or 10/22 likes it though.
