I bought some once fired .223 brass, it's mixed headstamp. Mostly LC brass with a bit of commercial mixed in. I've come across some headstamps that I've never seen before, and I thought this would be the place to find out about it. The headstamps in question are...
PMP
PSD
WCC

Anybody have any clue to these? Thanks.

From http://cartridgecollectors.org/headstampcodes.htm

PMP = Pretoria Metal Pressings Ltd., Pretoria, Republic of South Africa

PSD = Poongsan Metal Manufacturing Company Ltd., Seoul, Republic of Korea (probably at the Dongrae Ammunition Plant)

WCC = Western Cartridge Company (Olin), East Alton, IL

PSD is manufactured by PMC, good brass to reload on. At least the stuff that I've had was and I have some in 50 Cal also.

PMP is one of the few companies to hold the tolerances properly on their 303R British brass - I like it a lot.
