A guide to headstamps

Article about: I thought I would do a quick guide to cartridge headstamps. I know many of us are well aware of what all the stamps mean, but some people donít and I think it would be useful to those people

    The left cartridge with the G superimposed over the R was made by Georg Roth of Vienna Austria,is it rimmed or rimless? Is it 56mm long or 57mm long,a picture of the whole cartridge would be helpfull.....Pete.

    The only rimless cartridges I can find are 8x56mm Mannlicher-Schoenauer and 9x56 M-S,but these are both sporting rifle cartridges and your headstamp looks like a military configuration,I give up.

    Pete, I agree that it is certainly a military headstamp.

    Given the area it was found I wonder if it is a 7x57mm Roth contract for Serbia and that with corrosion etc it appears to measures nearer 56mm.

    Thanks Tony,and you are probably quite right,if only people would give accurate measurements and a photo of the whole cartridge in their first post it would really help.....rant over.

    Hi Folks,

    I'm looking for info on a P-code (P103). I found this casing over the weekend, but can't find the manufacturer in any of the lists.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I think it is probably a badly stamped 'P163".

    Third rimmed cartridge is a LE 303

    Measurements are ~ at base < 11.80 mm> ~ projectile mounts damaged / out of round ~ < 7.00 - 7.09 mm>



    Wondering if they military Blanks (??)

    First thought was that they are US Army as I also dug US Army webbing buckle today ~ also a rarity in our area ~
