I don't know if this one has been shared but this site has a really comprehensive list of headstamps if you have some that you don't recognize. Just figured I'd share.

layusn1 - You don't include a link in the post. Are you talking about the Ammo Brass Traders forum in your signature? I didn't register yet to see if it has more than a forum.


50 Shooter - that is a good site, indeed. However, it failed me when I went looking for the one headstamp I was curious about. Someone had asked about *I* in a different thread. That one and *-* (Starline) aren't listed. There's lots of other users of Starline brass in the list, but not their original headstamp!

Wow -- it's good that people are so obsessive compulsive (read "interested") in something in which I am interested but less dedicated ;)

I wonder how long that list took to assemble ...

What caliber and buying details do you have? (That is, bought as military surplus, etc.)

FC in the US is almost always Federal Cartridge, but with the year (1963) included it might be Prvi Partizan from the former Yugoslavia.
