Hi folks,

I'm trying to track down a .308 headstamp. Starting at the 9 o'clock position is a 0, 12 o'clock 308W, 3 o'clock 0, and 6 o'clock 82, 83, or 84 (obviously the date of manufacter). One more time: 0 308W 0 and two digit year.

I've tried a couple of websites without any matches, the closest was eastern Europe but not verified. It is brass and not steel, tested with a magnet. There appears to be a red primer sealant around the primer's edge.

I'd like to reload the 50 cases I collected, any help is appreciated.

This is old Sellier & Bellot 308, it was sold by SAMCO Global, it was corrosive, and the cases are Berdan primed and not readily reloadable. Scrap brass.

Thanks for saving me the trouble and broken de-capping pin.
