Wanda Cartridge shotshell that is near mint in 20
gauge. The vintage shell is transparent yellow 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 yellow
shells started in 1971. Their shells were one of the first see through

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 green 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.

There is a $15.00 minimum order shotshell requirement.
