    Price was low enough If only 10% of them go off I'm still good.

    Probably 1960's to 1970's. That box is pristine and looks to have been well stored. Don't know if there is any collector value? I'd pick out 10 primers total from different individual boxes and load and test. Bet they will all be good and that is just from the condition of the main box.
    However if ANY of them were duds, I wouldn't shoot any more of them. Too big a chance of hang-fires or blooper loads or a stuck bullet in the barrel. If the recoil and sound varies or you get one not firing scrap them.
