Default Red Plastic 20 ga.

I found these early red plastic winchester shells at a gun show years ago. The number 5 shot is my favorite for wild roosters.

No 20ís but I remember when 16ís were red or green, not purple. I still have a few boxes of my dadís that Iíll never shoot: red Winchester Rangers and green Remington Express. I always liked the green ones and making that the standard 16 color makes just as much sense as purple, which is one of my least favorite colors 🤨!
