    Hi everyone, I'm trying to identify some 50 bmg brass with a head stamp of 85 on top and 13 on the bottom. Thank-You in advance. Bruce

    Sounds like South African, be sure to check it as most if not all of it isn't reloadable. If you're buying from someone be sure to ask them to check it and or send you a pic of the flash hole(s).

    If not you could be buying a bunch of worthless brass.:confused:
