Went to one of our better gun shows here in Wisconsin last weekend. Was walking around not looking for anything special and there it was. Laying on the table in all of it's beauty and looking like it needed a new home I just could not pass it up. A Winchester model 70 in 300 H&H made in 1950.. We talked about it for a few minutes and I walked on, but it called me back. I'm a sucker for polished wood and deep dark bluing. Well I took it home and just finished taking it apart and cleaning and oiling everything. Now here's my question the seller gave me a couple of boxes of Winchester 180 gr. Fail safes. I know these are not made anymore and want to know about them. What are they good for or should I just keep them because they are old?
