Rem-UMC Newclub factory marked "Hand Loaded"


#1

This shotshell has a commercial-looking stamp in the middle of its body saying: “Hand loaded”. What does that mean? Was it sold pre-stamped and not-loaded and someone loaded at home?


#2

Yes, it was also sold factory loaded, and this was Remingtons way of knowing it was not a factory load, but a hand load should a problem arise. Winchester used the 1901 brand of shell as the same. However as they never factory loaded the 1901 brand, there was no need to stamp the case wall.
