Default No name bullets

I just came across some 55 grain 223 bullets and some 6 mm 80 grain and 6 mm 100 bullets new in the boxes they are probably 30 years old....gray box green lettering with the grain and caliber and the word trophy on the front they were purchase at a sporting goods store called. Leslie. Edelmans. I am trying to find out who made these.

If anyone has some ideas ????????

After all this time and not using them and keeping them hid or lost, what does it matter ? Work up some loads and shoot them.
I am not trying to be sarcastic, just wonder after all this time and no use.

Thinking about the question and the fact that these bullets have been in his possession for so long, is it possible that they were put out by Herter's way back then. Almost would seem to me that, that would be very possible, as Herter's sold a lot of off brand named shooting supplies. Bill K
