    Head stamps for the .303's were
    RL 32 Royal Laboratory, Woolwich, England
    K5 38 Kynoch (I.C.I.), Kidderminster, UK (1944)
    DAC 1940 Dominion Arsenal, Québec, Canada
    .50'S
    TW 43 Twin Cities Ordnance Plant, Minneapolis, MN
    LC 43 Lake City Ammunition Plant, Lake City, MO
    Looks like your headstamp list is being put to excellent use Give it a year or two and you'll be very sad like me and not need the list, you'll remember the codes anyway Always very impressive when someone comes to talk to you when you're digging and you can tell them the year, calibre and manufacturer of the cartridges !
