    I have four boxes of "Winchester Ranger SXT Controlled Expansion 45 Automatic 230 GR.SXT". Is there any collector value? If not I think I will shoot a box tomorrow to make sure they feed properly then use for carry ammo.

    The last ones that I sold on auction went for 80.00 per box. They were like new boxes and the ammo had never been fingered.

    That's ... interesting.

    While I still have some of the early SXT loads in 2-3 calibers (I'd have to check), I think I have a case (or more) of the RA9SXTP 127gr load. I've been occasionally using it for the range (instead of a newer version). :faint:

    Now I'm curious, though. I'll have to remember to check sometime and see if I have both of some of the RA45SXT & RA45SXTP tucked away among my older ammo.

    :rofl:

    The RA9SXTP used to not show up on gun broker very often. I bet on a good week it will fetch a good amount.

    I've got 2 boxes of S44M and 1 box of S357M in the black "Black Talon" boxes.

    4 boxes of RA44SXN in white Winchester boxes.

    Are these desirable to collectors, Mike.

    Yes, all of the black bullets are to valuable to shoot. The 44 in the 50 round box is valuable to collectors and hunters.
