Title: AMMOLOAD headstamp on 9mm case.
Post by: drmarkwg on January 24, 2013, 08:05:34 PM
I am researching a 9mm case with the headstamp AMMOLOAD 9MM LUGER. The case is unusual in that it also has an internal structure with a secondary "cup" in the base of the case, just in front of the head, in an area where one might assume it is intended to strengthen the case. The cases weigh an average of 4.4g, about .4 g heavier that the average 9mm case. I am hopeful someone will be familiar with it. Thanks.

Thanks,

I sent them off an e-mail this morning on the chance they might be the manufacturer.

Ammo Load Worldwide, Inc. is a manufacurer of machines to manufacture cases and cartridges.
So this is possibly / probably from a test run of 9 mm Luger cases.
BTW = Lewiston (hint, hint
:D )

1) I jut got one of these in as casework.  Definitely glad that I searched the Forum to help figure out the source...!


2) drmarkwg - did you get a response from Ammo Load?   




I honestly didn't realize my last character was a D until finding this thread...

Here is what I think is probably some better information than what I posted previously:

https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/howell-munitions-technology-ammo-load-freedom-munitions/39765 (https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/howell-munitions-technology-ammo-load-freedom-munitions/39765)

Ammo Load Worldwide still seems to be a related company, but I haven't figured out the relationship.

Looks like Howell Munitions is (or, was, maybe) the parent company:

Erin; I never received a response from my inquiry. I have not been able to identify the manufacturer of this case. I haven't seen this type of case with any other head stamp. Good luck. If anyone has any information they can share I would appreciate it.

Dear all
in 2013 I have seen this "AMMO LOAD 9MM LUGER" headstamp on a 9 mm Luger cartridge loaded by Freedom Munitions (at the SHOT Show).

Cases with these "inside" steps also show up from Pobjeda (as MaxxTech).
Either Ammoload - US and /or Anatolia - Turkey (or both togther) seem to make the machines and possibly the cases.

Greetings

Axel

Forgot to mention:  To complicate things, it looks like they were bought by Kash CA, which is apparently also the owner of LAX ammo.

I have seen this same ledge inside cartridge cases sold by Freedom Munitions with an FM headstamp.  See the attached images.  Maybe reaching out to Freedom Munitions might be a good starting point.
