Need some help with identifying a head stamp, the caliber is 45 Automatic. I'll put a picture up later on... the headstamp reads:


. T T Z ..


45 Auto


It looks just like that, with one small dot, then the lettering, then two small dots. Any ideas?

Just to clarify, it's TZZ, not TTZ.
TZ is the Hebrew abbreviation for MI, or Military Industries. The US govt. required a 3 letter code on contract ammo, so IMI just added another Z.

TZZ is good reloadable brass. Will give more service than many others.

If you reload TZZ, I recommend you use it exclusively for a given load.

I always separate out the TZZ for my favorite loads in .45ACP

The only thing that bugs me about TZZ brass is that it has smaller flash holes that sometimes grabs the decapping pin and pull it out of the stem.
