    WRA .44Special brass

    In the process of loading a few hundred WRA headstamped 44spec cases that I got back in the 70s
    from an old cowboy . These are not balloon head . Got to wondering when Win quit the WRA headstamp on 44brass . A google search did not turn up much .
    Any of you Gents have a date ?

    I've got WRA brass in 44 special, 38 special, 45 acp for sure, and I think some 30-06. No idea when the stopped using that headstamp.

    Bazoo - we're not too far from each other. I'm in Green County.

    Affording to Product Change Authorization WC-406, dated 7-26-67, the following headstamp changes were to be implemented on centerfire rifle and pistol cartridges:

    Super-Speed, Super-X, and Winchester changed to W-W Super.

    WRA and Western changed to W-W.
