Default Sisk Bullets ?

I picked up a couple of boxes (100 count) at an auction, in 17 cal. 20 and 25 grain Hollow point.
The boxes appear to by quite old.

Has anyone here had any experience with the Sisk bullets ?

Thanks !
Jim

Thumbs up Sisk Bullets.........

......were made through the 1960's in Iowa Park, Texas......about 10 miles west of me.

R.B. Sisk made the bullets up until his retirement and sold the business. The next owner miss-used the steel bullet dies.......resulting in suspect bullets.

I still have about 10-20 boxes of the bullets.

Thanks for that info Kevin. I had the opinion (no fact) that Sisk pills were much older.
I had a box or two of .224 l picked up from Charlie Pope - yes, H. M.'S son who was a real cracker jack of a guy. His wife Tommie was first class as well.
