This ammunition was produced by Liberty Ammunition.  It is marketed as Liberty Ammunition Civil Defense, 9mm Luger +P,  with a 50gr Nickel/copper monolithic hollow point bullet.    Although produced by Liberty Ammunition it is loaded into a RWS 9mm Luger and the headstamp does not indicate that it is a +P round.

"FC NT" (Federal Cartridge Non-Toxic) head stamp.


"FEDERAL NT" head stamp photo is available on the site, but not the "FC NT" version.  I came across this one in a recent case, and thought I'd submit the additional picture.

PERFECTA headstamp
Made in Italy for Tulammo (perhaps by Fiocchi?)
Photos attached of headstamp from a lab submission and box of ammo found on the Internet.

5.56 NATO M862 Short Range Training Ammunition (SRTA)

"Low" lethality, as opposed to "NO" lethality, intended primarily for live fire exercises against vehicles.  Plastic, short range, high drag bullet, fired from conventional small arms.  Beyond a specified distance from the muzzle, impact on tissue with the projectile would be painful, but not lethal.  (Still presents a vision hazard, however.)  To prevent confusion with conventional munitions, the weapon's bolt has a smaller case head opening, to prevent chambering a regular round, hence the special "S" in the cartridge headstamp.  Case head is smaller than conventional ammunition.  Note packaging is 30 rounds/box, instead of the more customary 20 rounds/box.
