Once again requesting information about a couple of cartridges I have. The one on the left I have always attributed to a reload with an odd bullet. It is a REM/UMC case with a US primer. The other is a steel capped? round nose with REM/UMC, the odd thing about this, if you will notice in the photograph, it has 2 figures just to the left of the REM. They appear a script writing of an “8-1”??. Does anyone know the meaning of this marking? I was told years ago that they were possibly marked this way for export to a foreign country. With this strange marking and the fact that it appears to be steel capped has got me curious. Any assistance would be appreciated. Lastly starting around the 1970’s to present, there has been an abundance of very specialty loads for the 44 Special. However from it’s creation to around the mid 1970’s I have never seen any loading for the 44 Special except for the standard 246 grain round nose lead. Does anyone know if there was any other loadings in this time period, bullet weights etc.? Once again thank you very much.
