On what calibre? I have a British .22 Rimfire captive bolt cattle killer blank round headstamped “AS” . This is made by Kynoch for Accles and Shelvoke Ltd., the company that makes the cattle killers. Sorry if this is irrelevant.

  • As a maker’s mark “AS” can be seen on some headstamps for the 20mm Hispano [20X110] rounds [brass or steel shell cases] and 20mm Oerlikon “S” [20X110RB] rounds [brass shell cases] made during WW2 here in USA. The “AS” mark stands for “Aluminum Specialty Co” from Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Liviu 03/11/07

The AS headstamp also occurs on Spanish made 9mmP plastic blanks sold witht the trade name Asaey which was reportedly sold to or in Israel. These look like a product of Plasticas Oramil.
