    Headstamp photos

    I decided since I was bored and had nothing to do to take some pics of cartridge headstamps just for fun. Some are new, some are not.

    Here are some old .32-20 cases.
    This one is the HV case that if you find the bullet in, pull it because if it ends up in your handgun, it will put out too much power.


    A more common Western case


    A few Winchester and Western .38 cases







    Not sure about this +P+ case


    A few Remington .38 cases




    Not sure what these are



    Speer +P case


    S & W


    Federal


    Here are a few oddballs







    A few .357's

    WCC is Western Cartridge Company, a division of Olin. Below is a handy link for looking up headstamps.

    I have one real odd ball head stamp, but it's not the head stamp (U) that makes it odd (to me)



    same one next to a 45 Colt

    Pretty sure that's a .41 Swiss Vetterli RF cartridge. The surplus rifles were so cheap and plentiful, American ammo companies even made cartridges - obviously Remington here. Even a few American single shots were chambered for it - Rem. rolling blocks and Marlin Ballards for example - to try to appeal to some European customers.
