Just found this REMINGTON 16 headstamp on the left in the below photo. 16 is the earliest date I’m aware of with Remington and U.S.C.Co. but do have a 15 date with Winchester product.
However all my other Remington 16’s (dummy, proof & ball) have the large headstamp on the right.
So has anyone else seen this small variation?
The case has a large lower mid-case hole through it and the typical CN-jacketed pointed bullet is taper crimped. The copper primer appears to have an anvil.
Edited to add that headstamp in question looks a lot like it was done / made on the same machinery that was sold & set-up for the French / Remington 8x50 R Lebel production, however this is a 7.62 M-N
The rims look to be different sizes in the photo and are but the one in question is just very slightly larger.
