I've got a variety of old shotgun shells, lots of paper, full boxes. Trying to figure out if there is any value to them or just shoot them up. I've got Federal, Western super X, Winchester rangers, Peters, Remington Kleenbore, Remington Express.

Any knowledge or input is appreciated!

Go to eBay.com and look up items similar to what you have. That should give you some idea of value. Most don't seem to bring much. But you never know.

I have been looking for the value of some of my own pre-WWII Shotshell boxes and shells.

Do not shoot them and if they are unopened you will want to leave them sealed. Sealed boxes seem to go for about double what an open box sells for. Partial open boxes are still more valuable than empty boxes in equal condition.

Forget EBay, that is where dealers dump junk boxes. Check out Ward's Auctions.

Pay attention to variation in price due to condition when trying to estimate your box's value.
