    Question Headstamps from Classic British Rifle Cartridges?

    Good morning, gentlemen,

    I'm looking for photos of headstamps -preferably of British or Empire manufacture- from classic British sporting rifle cartridges.

    I need at least four good ones of different cartridges. At present my short-list looks like this: .303, .375 H&H Magnum, .416 Rigby and .505 Gibbs, but it's by no means set in stone -and the argument about a definitive selection could obviously run and run! At this stage, anyway, the more, the merrier!

    Anyway, if you have an example of such a cartridge at home (or more), and would be so kind as to take a snapshot of its headstamp and post it on here (or PM me), I'd be most grateful. Any information received to accompany the image would also be warmly welcomed.

    TIA

    Thanks for the suggestion - I may just try it - but I'm hoping I can assemble a variety of manufacturer's marks along with the standard headstamps for the various chamberings.
