What would you do with them?

Cleaning out my reloading supplies and came across some old 12ga shotgun shells. They say Remington Peterson on them, but I think they are reloads based on the crimp. They belonged to my grandpa who passed away a number of years ago. They were just sitting in a box in my shop that is climate controlled. I'd give them away if they are safe to shoot, but have no idea if they are. What would you do with them?

I would probably shoot them.

Remington-Peters, not peterson. If they are not water compromised or left too many years in a hot shed, I'd shoot them.

Old and unknown heritage shotgun shells go to my local police department. I get a lot of bags of shells from neighbors that know I shoot. Unless they are full boxes I don't mess with them.

Did your grandpa reload? How does the crimp tell you they may be reloads? If they are someone else's reloads that you grandpa did not shoot, there may be a reason. If they are reloads your grandpa made, they are probably safe to shoot. If you do not know, I would not give them to someone else to shoot. You wouldn't be out anything, but your friends might be outta a shotgun.

Grandpa reloaded but I cannot be sure he reloaded these and I don't want to take a chance on them. I think I'll take to the department and let them dispose of them however they would like. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the matter.

If someone gives me old shotgun shells that I don't want to shoot, I cut the ends off and dump the lead into my bucket of lead for casting.

Now that is a good idea. I can give the shot away faster than the shells,
