    Thought these might be of interest.

    Very cool. I still have some of the old CCI package primers but I've never seen the Hodgdon primers. Where'd you get them?

    I bought the Hodgdon and CCI at a gun show around 2005 from a seller who got a lot of stuff from estate sales.
    Looked online at that time and didn't find anything on Hodgdon primers. Looking tonight, there have been a couple of mentions of Hodgdon primers with one from 2012 saying he was told by Hodgdon they were made over 19 years earlier by the Finnish company and I would say way over 19 years.

    Looking at the package graphics and colors, and making the assumption all 3 were from the same estate sale, I would guess 1965 to 1975 on all of them. Not sure which CCI is older though.

    Yes, very cool.

    I bought (‘94ish) 35K Rem. 61/2 SRPs from an estate.
    Packaging like your photo.

    I used them up loading 38 Super years back.
