8 x 50R Lebel Bullet Base Markings

We have had many discussions in the past regarding this topic. This morning, patent work finished up for this week, I researched what had been posted in the past and came up with this drawing / chart of the US and Kynoch made bullets. Additions welcome.

Very nice Randy, thanks & nothing to add here

Randy, really nice drawings, thanks for posting.

Years ago, when I asked for more information about combinations between bullet markings and headstamp, I made the following list (not updated since 2016, additions welcome):

  • U+B can be found in cartridges headstamped R. H. A. Co. and WESTERN.
  • U+G can be found in cartridges headstamped REMINGTON.
  • U+T can be found in cartridges headstamped RA, R. H. A. Co. and WESTERN.
  • U+dot can be found in cartridges headstamped RA, REMINGTON and R. H. A. Co..

Regards,

Fede
