    Connecticut Cartridge Company. located in Plainville Conn.
    Supplier of empty brass for the reloader. Not sure of their date of being business but I have sveral original boxes of that brass in 50/70 Gvt. caliber that has been reloaded. From the looks of the boxes, I would say that they are from the1920/30 era. Not unusual to find these in most any caliber since reloading was popular in that time to keep cost of ammo down.
    Someone may have more info on them. Keep an eye on the thread.

    I seem to remember using some of their reformed brass in the mid 70's. Believe they were around in the late 60's, and the last I heard of them was maybe '80. Not sure if they ever had any new manufactured drawn brass, might have had turned brass, everything I used from them was reformed from other parent cases. Anthony (Tony) Sailor over in Owen, Wi. used to do the same kinds of brass/ammo making. If you read any of the classic "Gun World" from the late 60's until the early '80's Dean Grennel used Tony's stuff regularly. I was always fascinated with this bit of ammo making, and oddly, ended up with a fair amount of Tony's dies and moulds in the mid 80's when I bought a large amount of such stuff out of a gun shop. Redrawing brass, like making 9.3x74R's from '06 still is interesting, like making 405's from .444's. But I digress.

    More info on Connecticut Cartridge Co. They were in business in the middle 1960s through 1971. They manufactured new brass for the older and obselete caibers and the brass was headstamped CCC. They did use an old style box for the brass.
    Info is a google find;

    Anyone got a shot of the headstamp? I seem to recall having a 33 Win with CCC headstamp, I thought it was probably from the Canadian Cartridge Co. Maybe Cascade. I probably still have it somewhere........
