Hi-Vel Cartridge Company

Liberty Cartridge Company

Multiple Munitions Incorprated

Palcher

Quad Ammo

SDM (Shooters Den Manf. ??)

Wahib Arms

Thanks for any help.

For .38 SPL and headstamp info together, you really should contact Otto Witt, as this is exactly his specialty. He is in the IAA Members Directory.

Jon C–Yes, Otto is a great source. He only lives about 30 miles from me. In fact, I just received a bunch of .45 Colt and .45-70 cartridges from him on Thursday. I have been bugging Otto a lot recently and hoped I could get some answers here on the Forum instead. But it looks like I will need to send the list to him.

Leon–Thanks for the address’s. The time frame is right also. All the 38’s I listed were obtained in the 1980’s.
