?? What .22cal bullet has a Acorn on the base ???

I've got some .22cal C.B. Caps that have an ACORN impressed into the base of the Copper--NOT brass case. Anyone know Who's they are and where I can get some more???? THANX--SNEAKY

Rheinisch-Westfalische Sprengstoff A.G.


Commonly known as RWS.

I may be wrong, but I don't think they've made copper-cased .22 ammo of any kind in a LONG time.

Mike is correct! RWS.
I bought these in the late 1070s.

I think I found some RWS C.B. OR B.B. CAPS

Someone advised me that a company "Gold City Gun & Cartridge Co.LLc has both for sale. BUT what's the difference between C.B caps and B.B.caps ??? They are both 17gr and both are listed @ 750FPS and are solid, special purpose low velocity. The ones that I still have do have a copper case and the projectile is pointed. I suppose that when I call them on Monday they'll be able to tell me. Thanks again SNEAKY

What, on your way to the Second Crusade?

Hold up, Richard the Lionheart! I need to get some ammo!

I'm old. Can't help it. Actually, it should have said "1970s."
