I believe the rds were made for “Old Western Scrounger”, Carson City but I can’t remember who HDS were, sorry.

I believe that “H.D.S.” represent:

Huntington’s Sporting store of East Oroville, Califonia, USA.

As part of their products they provide cases, generally with a “HDS” hs (representing “Huntington Die Specialties”.

They have produced (or had produced for them by other companies such as Horneber who they are agents for) properly headstamped 11mm Mauser and .500/416 NE cases.
