Not the headstamp I was expecting


Found this specimen at a small shop in Idaho. I wasn’t really interested until I looked at the headstamp.

Any idea how a BELL .50 BASIC got a .44AUTO MAG headstamp?


You never know what you might find in this hobby!


That’s a double whammy I have collected the .44 Auto Mag seriously since its inception. I have never seen a Bell headstamp on an actual .44 Auto Mag Case, To see one on a .50 Basic is a real shocker.
