Savage HS timeline


#1

There is a dearth of information to help date cartridges by headstamp. Especially for manufacturers such as the big R and big W. But how about Savage? Is there anyone who knows when the different HSs were used? Such as SA, S.A.Co, SA Corp, SAVAGE, etc.

Some calibers ,25-20 WCF & 32-20 WCF, were marked “Savage” from

Hey Dick

Great information! Thanks. I didn’t even know there was whole book about Savage. Next thing you know, there’ll be one about 30-06. :) :)
