A friend recently sent me the following photo of these two headstamps pointing out the similarity between the two. I have had both headstamps for many years but had not noticed how similar they actually are. My records indicate the INDUMIL round dates from about 1980. Notes on other Indumil rounds through the early-1990s indicate they were made by FN, MEN and DAG. Others appear to be contract headstamps, but I have not identified the manufacturer. These include “IM CAL 9MM”.
The AGUILA round dates from about 1975 (the date I found it) but both rounds could date from the same time. I wonder if the Indumil round was made by Aguila? Or, perhaps both were made by some other company.
If anyone has additional information or insights, I would appreciate it.
Does anyone know why 9 M/M PAP instead of 9 M/M PAR???
There is another Indumil headstamp reported with headstamp “INDUMIL 9MM NATO” . If anyone has a photo of this headstamp or a round or a fired case, I would appreciate knowing what it actually looks like.
