Wanda Cartridge shotshell cardboard box that is near mint for 12 gauge red shells. The original box is folded and has never been used. Hard to find in this fine condition. The code printing on the box shows Century Papers Inc. was the printer of the box and I think their date system states May 1968 which is probably the date the box was printed.

The vintage 12 gauge shells where transparent red in color. Wanda Cartridge Company was in Houston, Texas from 1965 to 1972. Their shells were one of the first see through plastic shot shells made. This is a empty box and no shells are included.

50 years old or more!

Copy on the box: Wanda shot shells are precision loaded on the most modern and fully automatic equipment available. The high standard of quality assures the shooter of dependable performance under all conditions. All components, from the ultra modern all plastic hull to the extra hard shot, are carefully selected and manufactured to the most rigid specifications. Space age all plastic shell with built in added power. High performance aerodynamically balanced top wad. Completely weatherproof. Non-corrosive priming. Manufactured in the U.S.A. 25 - 12 Gauge - 2-3/8 inch

If you ever wanted to know how a shotshell is put together and how it works just look at one of the Wanda's. You can see the powder and shot inside through the almost clear walls of the Lexan** plastic shell. If you are a shotshell collector you need a least one of the Wanda see through shells to add to your collection. The plastic overshot wad was designed to plane out of the shot line shortly after leaving the barrel. They were really high tech for their day.

They made shells in different transparent colors including red, yellow, green and maybe blue. We have available for sale some red 12 gaugegreen 20 gauge and yellow 20 gauge.

I believe they only made 12GA, 20GA and where planning on producing 16GA shells before they closed. I also believe they only made red, green, yellow shells and blue for use internally for testing.

No longer in Production!

Collecting Shotshells

You must be 18 or older to purchase ammunition. Check your local laws for any regulations before ordering any ammunition products. Live shotshells can only be shipped by UPS and they charge a service fee for shipping ammo in addition to their normal shipping charge. Therefore shipping is higher for these shells than our normal shipping charge. Shipping will be via UPS Ground only! A physical address will be necessary as UPS does not deliver to Post Office Boxes. To order call us and will be glad to hold what you want for 5 days to allow you to send us a money order or check. We only sell shotshells with a money order or check because PayPal does not allow ammunition to be purchased through their payment system. Please understand, this is NOT our rule but is PayPal's rule.

The $15.00 minimum is for live shot shells only and not empty shot shell boxes, non live shells or shells not loaded.

*For fastest service send a USPS Money Order. We can cash the USPS Money Order the same day we get your order while we are at the Post Office here in our town and ship your item the next business day. Other money orders do not have this feature for fast clear funds in our hands, only USPS Money Orders work this way. We will accept any money order but all other money orders or checks must go through our bank and they do not guarantee the funds until the money order or check clears.
