Case marking

Post by NonConformist » Fri Feb 07, 2014 4:10 pm

I have a question. I found a shell casing in my carport that isn't mine. Its a 22LR casing marked with an R inside a shield(looks sorta like an old badge) im assuming Remington but all my Remington .22 is marked 'Rem' in a script sorta like this- Rem. What is it?
