I ran on to this item and found it interesting: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/880326534

By case, I assume that the seller means 20 boxes as that was what a "case" of shotgun shells meant back when these were made. There are 12 boxes showing in the picture.

Back in the 60s and into the 70s, my brother and I shot many, many cases of these in 1 oz. loads, and reloaded same (about 2-3 times until pinholes started in the paper near the top of the brass).

Dad always bought a case each fall before bird season started. Later, when he switched to a 20 gauge, he shot lots and lots of 20 gauge Federal papers like these.

Don't see a case offered often. I have no association with this item.

Not knocking the chance to get some cool papers to shoot but you can get newly manufactured paper RST's for less and pick your shot size at the same time.

Under the Item Characteristics section it says there are 300 rounds, so the 12 boxes shown are likely the only ones.
