Apparently by 1932, one didn't need one of those old Super-Fox guns, just NITRO EXPRESS Kleanbore ammunition --

I'm sure Jack wouldn't lie to us.

If the NITRO EXPRESS was Long Range, I guess these ARROW EXPRESS that are Extra Long Range would be good for 100 yards!!

My guess is those 87 year old non-corrosive primers have long ago expired.
