I just received some Double Tap ammo, and it never fails that they have some inexplicable headstamp variations on their pistol calibers.
First, on 9x19, I was not surprised to see the new headstamp variation as Double Tap seems to like to change it every few years, but I was surprised (or ultimately not surprised) to see that they have 2 slight variations of the same headstamp, and these appeared in the same box. Most all of the new 9mm headstamps were of the larger letter style with round “O” and wide “9”, but a few are clearly racetrack O’s which look more like a zero, and which have overall smaller lettering and a clearly more narrow 9.
The general condition of all of the 9mm headstamps was weak, with some having open tops on the “O”, and others just being generally messy.
Their new 10mm headstamp is more of a stencil style lettering with open letters which seem to be too close to the rim edge. Both the 9mm and 10mm headstamps I have are from boxes of duplex “Equalizer” ammo.
And then finally a normal looking .38 special headstamp which is newer from them:
