It was mentioned in the forums (http://www.afte.org/forum/smf1/index.php?topic=9503.msg59338) that Underwood loads LeHigh bullets in their cartridges with their headstamp.  But here is a recently purchased box with Starline headstamps.


Also, Richard's post above with the RattleSnake Ammo, has a different headstamp than mine.

Comparison of 9mm Luger Remington headstamps
26762-0
The new headstamp on the left indicates the round was loaded in "Lonoke 2" (the new section of the facility), while the headstamp on the right indicates the round was loaded in the original section of the facility.  The picture doesn't illustrate the rounding of the headstamp edge on the Lonoke 2 round versus the straight edge of the original round.  Also note the dot between the P and the end of LUGER.

These are great, guys.  Thanks and keep 'em coming!  As soon as the HSG is migrated over to the new website, these will be added.

I just got this ammo in.  It is apparently made by Truelove & Maclean (http://www.trueloveandmaclean.com/components/) who also makes 380 Auto according to their website.  And at least early on, they supplied brass with an unlabeled headstamp: https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/odd-9x19mm-headstamp/16940

I received a bundle of these FCCs for NIBIN recently.


Doing a search it seems like is possibly from norma or one of the RUAG companies.


https://pinevalleymunitions.com/product/5-56-nato-77-grain-smk/


Site above specifically mentions "new brass from Norma" with a headstamp of AMTC or Norma. If you go through the photos, there is one picture with the AMTC headstamp.


https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/amtc-5-56x45mm-h-s-ruag-ammotec-usa-inc-not-amtech/43542


IAA seems split on the issue, but norma seems to be under RUAG if you scroll down the bottom of this page: https://www.ruag.com/en/products-services/land


Seems like this would support it could be from norma.

Came across these and didn't see them on here or on the headstamp guide. Quick search found their firearms (https://www.sarsilmaz.com/en/) but I didn't find much about the ammunition.
Edited to add "SAR" headstamp for searching.
