Can anybody tell me who made this and the approximate date of manufacture?

Thanks,
Mike.

One possibility:

BB (Bertram Bullet Co. Pty. Ltd., 200 Goulburn Valley Highway, Seymour, Victoria, 3660, Australia).

@Sam3 @Mayhem

Thanks for the reply, Any idea on the year/s of manufacture?

Cheers,
Mike.

Sorry Mike - I have no idea as to the date. To my knowledge, Bruce makes batches as required and I don’t think I have ever seen one of his cases with a year stamp on it - excluding commemorative cases that is.

He has a facebook page and lists his email there.

Mike, this caliber was introduced in 1988. An example observed in 1989 bear the same headstamp.

Regards,

Fede

My Bertram records (like Fede’s) show that it was introduced by 1989 but I cannot confirm that 1988 date.
