Last year I was fortunate enough to obtain a specimen of a S&B round made for Saudi Arabia. It is the round illustrated below with the GM bullet and the blue painted primer and primer seal.
Recently the same headstamp turned up on a load with a brass bullet and “9X19 S&B” printed on the side. These rounds came in the white box illustrated. These rounds were clearly loaded in unused cases from the Saudi contract. The printing on the side meets the requirements for commercial sale in Germany. A pallet, or more, of this ammo turned up in the US. The box label is unusual and interesting. There are no markings on the box other than those illustrated and the date??? code inside the end flap which is 1550/333.
The “MIC” on the headstamp stands for “Military Industries Corporation” which is a public corporation providing support to the Saudi military (according to Wikipedia).
Does anyone have any idea of the meaning of “C” just before the year (13)???
