Wanda Cartridge shotshell that is near mint in 20 gauge. The vintage shell is transparent green in color. You can see through the shell or inside the shell. Wanda Cartridge Company was in Manvel, Texas, a suburb of Houston from 1965 to 1972. The production green shells started in 1971. Their shells were one of the first see through all plastic shot shells made. Notice the means of closing the mouth end of the shell case to secure the shot is different from
other shells and is all plastic. On the base is Pat. Pend. which means Patent Pending. These are old shells and probably should not be fired in your shotgun. All ammunition is for collecting/decorative purposes only and we in no way guarantee or imply them to be functional in anyway other than collecting or decorative purposes.

Shows interior construction of shotshell

If you ever wanted to know how a shotshell is put together and how it works just look at one of these Wanda's. You can see the powder and shot inside through the almost clear walls of the plastic shell. If you are a shotshell collector you need a least one of the Wanda see through shells to add to your collection. 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 red 12 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 for sale and blue for use internally for testing.

No longer in Production!

There is a $15.00 minimum order shotshell requirement.

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.
