    hi

    As I undestand, "St." mean steel bullet. If there are lead bullets, I think there is no letters.

    Some really useful information on this thread. With regard to Pascal's pic, 18th Jan, 2009, does anybody know what the white band signifies? I recall having seen another photo of a 77 similarly marked.
    Dave.
