CAL 50 RA 33 headstamp


#1

Having a hard time getting a picture of it.
Did remington make 50cal then? Was this a correct headstamp?
It really looks like an R to me, different font, different primer, VERY lightly struck.

Heres my FA round comparison

Instead of a camera, find a copy machine, or a flat bed scanner. Set the cartridge on it’s base and scan it. It’s easier to record headstamps that way than by camera.

RA did make .50 ammo, but I don’t recall anything prior to 1940.

Jestertoo,

The “.50 Cal. Book” shows that headstamp by Remington.

Keith, thanks for the suggestion.

Dave, thanks. Can’t believe I didn’t think to check Fuchs’ first.
