EOD–I have a number of similar headstamped 7.62x39 but none with quite the same font. Have not seen this one before.


#3

Alex, the font size and spacing is the same found in R-P cases but I have not seen this one before. Are you sure this headstamp actually exist and it was not digitally modified?


#4

Fede, no idea, it is from a commercial site selling photos. I would not see the purpose of rendering it digital. In particular with an ejector mark.


#5

Appears to be a small rifle primer and I have only seen Remington 7.62x39 with the SR primer pocket. Font appears to be Remington as well. JH

A closer look at the picture show some cloned spots which are typical of the Photoshop clone stamp tool.

The nickeled primer also indicates that this is not a Remington factory load and maybe was loaded by some other company. Here is compared with a R-P case loaded by Cor-Bon:

Fede, that seems to be it.
You think they just removed the manufacturer for what ever copyright reasons or so?


#8

The website says “Royalty free stock photos” and this picture is offered for sale at different prices according to resolution (up to $38!!!) so copyright is probably the cause of the erased “R-P”. This kind of work is also typically used in magazine articles.


#9

Having a fake image for 38$ is quite retarded in my view. Guess people simply do not care.
I should sell all my “real” images and become rich then…


#10

Well, the web works in mysterious ways.

Here is another “clandestine” headstamp from the same website (more on the bottom):
