This one shipped in 1956. Hey DD, Any idea how old the ederal Monark ammo is? It was in a box of my Grampa's stuff I got after he passed.

Wing;

I think that the last time I saw any Federal Monark was the 60's, but I wouldn't swear to it.

Keep out of the reach of children was required after 1962. Probably
late 60s's same for the yellow Winchester box.

      I might end up with something similar soon.
There are some really good deals on quality 38 specials.
   People seem to think its obsolete.
      But like the 30/30 it still does everything it
ever did.

I have always liked revolvers more than autos. I just shoot better with them, however, most people especially younger people disagree with me.

Fella's;

When I first started carrying, it was a revolver. Now it's
a semi-auto & I'm happier. I think that it conceals better
and I know that it's a whole helluva lot more comfortable.
More rounds available also. Not that four, five, or six,
shouldn't be enough to get you out of trouble if need be.
But the higher capacity pretty much goes with the territory
and I don't mind it in the least.

Deaddog: I thought it was "The Gun Control Act Of 1968"
that mandated the "children" warning on ammo boxes?
I guess I don't know for sure - I have just heard SO many
cartridge collector types repeat that contention.
I wonder how we could find out for sure?

GCA of 1968 changed a lot. Needed to show drivers license to buy 22 rf ammo, and seller needed to keep record of sale (your name, etc).

GCA '68 put a lot of burden on sellers and manufactures of ammo regarding children.

But I think that the marking notice about children was not specifically mandated. The industry just decided that marking would get them GCA around the stupid GCA regulations.

I was 18 and bought a rem m700 308 win rifle, weeks later after the GCA took effect the same store wouldn't sell me ammo???????? I talked to the manager, told him I had 'his' rifle so why not sell me ammo. he said "give the kid the ammo".

1964 WW came out with plastic hulls. The two boxes on the left are
paper hulls. They kept the "All New Plastic" tab on for several years.

An ample amount of research has now convinced me that a
Federal mandate in the year 1962 (nineteen hundred and
sixty two) brought about the "Keep Out Of Reach Of
Children" warnings on all American manufactured/sold
ammunition!
NOT... the Gun Control Act Of 1968 (nineteen hundred and
sixty eight) like I had heard for so long.
Was worth searching this out to get the CORRECT year in my
head.

I could be wrong and often am.!     

I believe the statement “Keep out of the reach of
children” came from the Federal Hazardous Substances
Act (FHSA) which requires precautionary labeling on
the container of hazardous household products. This
was the 1962 act; and they made it apply to Ammo. If
you look on household chemicals bottles today you will
find that same wording.

Latter the Consumer Product Saferty Commission was
founded under fed statute.   And that specific warning
was mandated by CPSC. Ammo manufacturers complied
with out any screams; and they continued to place that
warning.

The CPSC was corrupted by anti-gun folks that urged
them to outlaw handgun ammo as inherently dangerous.
The CPSC at that time had jurisdiction over all
product including ammo.

IIRC, the CPSC discussed outlawing handgun ammo, but
never did. It did hold that all ammo and even guns
were within their jurisdiction. They were not ready
to give up. The isssue finally hit the pro-gun
people, who saw it as the first step to outlaw ammo,
then guns.

In the 1972 product safety act exempted firearms from
the definition of “consumer products” the commission
was to regulate. This was in response to the NRA and
some other pro-gun lobbies

Ted (you could drown in my car) Kennedy always tried
to get that authority back into the CPSC power, but
failed.

I don't think today the WARNING is required, but ammo
manufacturers just kept it on to limit their
individual liability.

Clearly it does no good, and no one reads it.
