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.

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).

Marah,

this looks like a reloaded cartridge with a primer punch mark & a mark from the shell holder.
Greetings
Axel

Marah,

Thanks for posting about the VNM headstamp. It has now been added to the Headstamp Guide.
