    The boxes of 351's here often sell for $40 to $75 per box. Lots of people still shoot and hunt with 351's. The age and condition of the box itself makes a big difference in the price. Like other calibers sometimes the empty box is worth more than the ammo. The Winchester self-loaders had an interesting history and I think look cool. Not a pactical gun but sure is a piece of Winchester history. They made 32 , 35 , 351 , and 401 sizes.
