    Bought these 5 years ago and finally used them.

    Drilled out the primer pocket. They work as expected

    I've only ever used wax and the Speer ones. Cool.
    I never knew what CCI stood for 'til now..

    I remember the first time I came across "Cascade Cartridge Inc." and it dawned on me who it was.

    Used the Speer and made wax bullets. Made these up to show an old timer neighbor something to "play" with. The same guy that gave me the old Winchester pellet gun.

    Going to sacrifice some 45acp brass for these bullets. Will drill out the primer pocket.

    Very interesting, seems they were plastic and wax, reusable up to 15 times. Originally sold for 3.75 for a box of 500. The advertisement I found said you can shoot for a penny a round... But that was some 50 years ago...
