Peters formed the Peters Cartridge Company at Kings Mills in 1887.Machinery was manufacturing four-thousand cartridges per hour by 1889.When he gave some of it to Kuntz when he was 12, the boy thought he'd died and gone to heaven.Other collections Mutscher has - including oil cans, cartridges and cap gun caps (he even owns a cartridge from a Gatling Gun that dates to the Civil War era) - don't match his .22 cartridge box collection for size and depth.King sold the Miami Powder Company in 1877 to build the Great Western Powder Works with the company town of Kings Mills at a more favorable hydropower location downstream of Goes Station.A wooden dam diverted water into a power canal through the gorge in a narrow valley between steep adjacent hills.Bullet manufacturing building R-6 was built of brick; and money from wartime contracts was used to replace most of the old wooden framed buildings with brick and reinforced concrete structures including the main R-1 building in 1916, the R-17 power house in 1917, metallic cartridge loading building R-2 in 1918, primer assembly building R-9, and the R-23 indoor shooting range and ballistics laboratory in 1919.A taller brick shot tower painted with a large P became a local landmark.



Over 31 years, he amassed quite the selection of shells.And at one time, there was a greater variety of .22 caliber rounds.Mutscher shows a board with more than 12 different .22 rounds adhered to it, everything from short "splatter" loads for shooting at carnivals to long magnums for power.Remington Arms purchased the Peters Cartridge Company in 1934.

Facilities were expanded during World War II to include the federally owned Kings Mills Ordnance Plant manufacturing military ammunition on an adjacent hill south of the Peters factory complex.

An advertisement for NRA ammunition is one of the promotional items in Mutscher's collection.
