Headstamp info wanted of new Latvian company "VAIROG"


#1

Latvia has a new cartridge manufacturer which is named “VAIROG”. This reminds us of the “old” Vairogs which was the former S&B plant. As we know Vairogs made cartridges till 1945. If my info is right they made priming screws after the war and the last one known is from 1959 (sure later ones can exist).
But back to “VAIROG”, they have a registered business in the US too (sure to qualify for sales to the US govt).

Has anybody seen their headstamps already?
To my understanding they have started ammo operations in 2017.
As per their US website they are making:
5.56x45
6.5x49 (Creedmor)
7.62x35 (300 Blackout)
7.62x39
7.62x51

The US branch:

I just talked to them. There will be letters in the shield logo. If made in the USA will have VUS. If Made in Latvia will have VEU (EU for Europe)
