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

Just a suggestion a phone call to Kinnoch they might be able to help you
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.
