On a recent order from Bud’s Gun Shop I picked up a pack of what they refer somewhat generically to as “Legend 9mm” 115gr FMJ. It turns out these have an odd generic headstamp as well, which I don’t recall seeing before. I assume this ammo was something to do with GBW (Gold Belt Wolf) in Florida since they have an entire line of “Legend” ammo in both FMJ and SCHP, although they usually use their “GBW” headstamp on 9mm. This headstamp is more covert for whatever reason. Also, Bud’s is a huge distributor for GBW, so it figures they would get this stuff. Maybe it is generic private-label-for-anybody stuff?
The primers look to be Fiocchi’s Zeta-Pi lead-free primers, and this is also an odd trait for U.S. domestic manufacture generic ammo like this, but GBW, and NPA (both in Florida) are known to get into these primers in 9mm. Another odd thing - these are brass-plated steel cases, like the stuff from Freedom Munitions a couple years ago. I pulled a bullet from one, and they are standard FMJ (not plated), and the jacket curls in a bit around the base of the bullet, but leaves the majority of the projectile base as exposed lead. This exposed central portion is concave a bit.
