I just bought a box of 50 44 REM. MAGNUM it looks like they are very old.
They are 240 grain bullets. The sticker price on them says $7.87. Anyone have any idea what year they might be from based on the make and the grain? They are still safe to shoot arent they?....Thanks

well 240 grain is probably the most popular loading of .44 mag, so it could be pretty much anything.

It should be safe as long as there is no visible corrosion on the case.

Dupont owned Remington. The box is Remington. Can you post a pic? I don't know how old they are but it's possible if they're 50's or even 60's then someone may pay you a good amount for that box of ammo.
