I don't know anything really about this headstamp, I had a detective try and help, perhaps Wolf or other Russian manufacturer due to the steel casing. I have seen the little symbol on two other headstamp images in the gallery. Other than that, I cannot provide any other info.. Any help would be appreciated!

Thank You!

So, are you saying this is also Silver Bear ammo manufactured by the Ulyanovsk Machine Tool Plant?

Not Silver Bear . . . they are, in my experience, nickel plated steel.  Looks like yours is just the steel with the greenish, or is it just plain steel, coating by Ulyanovsk Machine Tool Plant.

Ah! We have these bright yellow lights in our "lab", so.. the image is a bit deceiving, colorwise.. But yes, it does have that coating!
Thanks for your input!  ;)

Minuteman line of .50 BMG caliber ammunition for the commercial US shooting market, utilizing once-fired military brass and pulled surplus military projectiles, brass, percussion, boxer, non-corrosive primers from CCI, no primer sealant, primer crimp removed.  This example utilizes WW2-vintage M2 Armor Piercing projectiles.  Mixed headstamps, this particular box contained brass originally from Japan.  Distributed by the Ammunition Store of North Canton, OH.  Circa July 2010.  Brown cardboard box of 10 rounds with white paper label and black printing.  Headstamp codes translate to J=Japan, N=NIPPON KOKI CO LTD, W= Western calendar, 05=Date of prodution, 2005.

Starline 50 Action Express
Starline Brass  1300 West Henry, Sedalia, MO 65301
http://www.starlinebrass.com

Interesting trivia note per Robert Hayden of Starline:
Very few of their cartridge cases get the three stars, only the larger calibers with a short caliber designation; 50-AE leaves plenty of extra room on the case head to add the third star.

Here is one that stumped several of us.

16099-0

It is manufactured by Sellier & Bellot at their Prague, Czech Republic Factory in Vlasim.  They were contracted by SME (Syarikat Malaysia Explosives) Ordnance Sdn Bhd, or SMEO.

We believe the "05" at the 4 o'clock position is the 2005 manufacture date.


Here is an old one that is similar to one already in the database, but with a different manufacturer.  Navy Arms made a couple of runs of both .32 Long RF and .32 Short RF in the late 1990's. It was produced for them by CBC in Brazil.
16101-1
16103-2

Navy Arms, (201) 945-2500, www.navyarms.com
Old Western Scrounger, (530) 842-1250, www.ows-ammunition.com
Ammo-One, (207) 642-7980, www.ammo-one.com


Here is a 12 gauge primed paper "Cheddite" shotshell.  It is essentially a Fiocchi low brass clear, Cheddite Multi-Hull Paper tube (also made in Multi-Hull plastic tube).  Cheddite continues to make hulls for many ammo makers and reloaders: http://www.cheddite.com/.

Shotshells with these headstamps have been seen on Ballistic Products Inc. bean bag shotshells and Defense Technology Corp. bean bag shotshells.  They have also been  seen it on shells from "Polywad Shotgun Shell" (http://www.afte.org/forum/smf1/index.php?topic=5950.0).

Some new headstamps from Central Florida LEO ranges; the S&B Non-Tox showed up I'm told just this past fall....note if you reload these non_tox's had quite a few case splits on first shot.

Is anyone adding HS images to the headstamp guide? There doesn't seem to be a lot of images there and this thread has a lot that aren't there. Just wondering.
