Anybody around who’s familiar with shotshells used in South Africa?

Here is my small collection of specialty short 12ga shells from South Africa. These 2.25" were made for use with the Techno Arms “Mag-7” shotgun, which used a 5-shot magazine inserted into the pistol grip. I own the sporterized import version, the Mag-7M1. The shells are from L to R: #5 birdshot, SSG (buck), AAA, penetrator slug, drill rd, non-lethal rubber, non-lethal rubber. Standard 2.75" shells are shown on either end for scale:

Hi matt,
Nice collection of them, back when I collected plastic I used to have them in the normal size, and one or two of the 2.25" ones.
Am I correct to say that the headstamps on the drill and the penetrator are used for the south african police or army?

Regards rené

As far as I know the 12 12 headstamp is the military & police type headstamp.
