    It's Armscor America. Have reloaded some here. So far it has been okay. But it has been handgun brass.

    Armscor makes sense, though the armscor in .233 I have seen in the past the headstamp spells out armscor.

    It's Armscor. The loaded factory ammo sucked for me,but I'd call the brass good. I've only reloaded the 100 I have three times. No cracks, neck splits or random fails. Primer pockets are not too loose and not too tight. Has better neck tension than RP (I don't like RP).

    jeep, Armscor just opened up a cartridge facility in the U.S. within the last year or two, IIRC.

    If I understood it right, the ones stamped ARMSCOR are from the Philippines.

    ARMSCOR has reloaded nicely for me. Just with like other brass a few will turn out to be junk. But most commercial 223, has reloaded well, for the brass i have in quantity.
