    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.
