    I have a box of 38 cal 158 gr LRN taurus bullets and would like to know how old they and if they still make them. If not when did they stop.
    thanks

    This would not (likely) be related to Taurus the Brazilian gun company.

    Google is pulling up zip on "Alberts Corporation Franklin Lakes".

    Alberts, who made the Taurus Bullets, went out of business years ago.
    Hope this helps.

    From what I get these are hard to fined so I was wondering If I should us them or hold on to them.
    Thanks

    Yep.

    Got a couple of boxes myself. Smelted one box to make new boolits, and saved the other just because . . .
