Submitting a new to me headstamp that I could not find in the headstamp guide.  I came across this "VNM 20 9P" headstamp in casework.  A Google search led me to the forum feed on IAA's site detailing their research into Medef Defense Ltd's Venom cartridge out of Turkey (https://forum.cartridgecollectors.org/t/venom-9x19-ammo-steel-case-arrived/41225).  Packaging information is included on that forum feed...I don't have packaging info to share.

See attached headstamp examples. 

Noticed some strange manufacturing defects across the primer (hand loaded brass??), and a red case mouth sealant.   But what is really cool is the manufacturing marks around the characters of the headstamp on the unfired example.  The cartridge cases were loaded with a brass jacketed FMJ round nose bullet, slightly concave base.  All components non-magnetic.  Again, not sure if these are factory loaded or hand loaded (seem a little sloppy to be factory loaded).

The AFTE forum is for the exchange of information to assist in case work, information, and advancing the science.  Political discussions can be expressed on other forums.  Please utilize those forums for political discussions.

If a law passes that examiners need to know about because it affects their casework, please post. 

Regards,Chris

I believe this over .50 law already exists in that several years ago the original .50AE ammunition was banned by the ATF due to it being over .50 (.507"). Later / current product now being smaller (.497).
