Several hours of research has provided nothing solid.  Can anyone help ID this cartridge manufacturer?
Thanks.

Is that a "D" at the top?

I found this website with a couple of possible leads.  Perhaps someone from the organization would be able to further help/confirm with some photos?

The folks in the International Ammunition Association (cartridgecollectors.org) are a great resource!  I would suggest contacting Lew Curtis with the IAA, he specializes in 9mm headstamps.

The cartridge is made by Denel (PMP) in South Africa and imported into the US by Battle Born Munitions in Reno NV. This was first imported early this year as far as I can tell.
