Help with head stamp identification
« on: March 12, 2012, 07:14:37 PM »
Is anyone familiar with the head stamp on this 308 Winchester case. The date 1982 and the caliber are clear but I am unfamiliar with the opposing circles or zeros. This is a Berdan primed case. Thanks all.

It appears that it is S&B military surplus ammunition.  Here is a place that has it for sale with some good pics:

Here is another forum that discusses this particular ammunition:
