During the Great Depression, Remington was purchased by the DuPont Corporation, which had made its fortune with improvements to gunpowder. A year later, Remington purchased the Peters Cartridge Company; today, many of the Remington headstamps still have R-P on them for Remington-Peters.They dropped the peters name several years ago when all shot gun shells went to the 209 primer.

I don't know offhand. It's just Remington ammo with a different name on it. Which kind of Remington ammo is another thing I don't know.

From what I can ascertain from a little e-net searching, you may have just shot up a small fortune. There are all kinds of collectors out there willing to pay big money for the Peters name !

Remington puts out some Peters branded boxes now and again, especially around hunting season - nice blue boxes

I buy peters shotgun shells at Sportsman Warehouse. They have 2 3/4 heavy target loads in #7 1/2 & #8 (low brass base's). I use them for trap shooting with great success.

I shot at a sporting clays range last week in New Jersey. They furnished the 20 gauge shells which were Peters. They had a fiber wad, no plastic wad cup. The range does not allow any shells with plastic wads only fiber. One station over a lake required that you shoot non-toxic RST ammo, which they provided. The 12 gauge shells were made by Gamebore, a subsidiary of Kent. The shells were completely transparent and you could see the shot, wad, and powder. I was surprised but it was a really nice load, 1200 fps.

I guess this is what shotgunning is coming to now.
