The 2 3/4 inch Magnums were introduced by all of our ammunition manufacturers in their December 1954 price lists. The Peters plastic shells were introduced in 1961 and the Power Piston Wad came along in 1965. 1961 to 4 they had and over-powder plastic wad, somewhat like the Alcan PGS, that they called Power Piston. That style box was still in use for the High Velocity loads in 1973. I don't have anything for 1974, but there was a new style box for the High Velocity loads for 1975.

I wouldn't mind getting my hands on those Peters 1-1/4 ounce loads, my New Browning A5 Sweet 16 loves them.
I wish they still made 1-1/4 ounce loads.
