    Winchester Krag brass marked 30 ARMY

    I was given some Winchester brass for the Krag marked "super speed 30 ARMY" I wonder how old it is. When did Winchester stop marking Krag brass this way?

    Your Krag brass headstamped Super Speed .30 Army may be pre-WW2.

    1950s Postwar Winchester brass I have is headstamped WRA .30-40 Krag

    I have 1955 / 1956 ammunition hearstamped the same. I think Super Speed was a marketing statement by Winchester.
