I picked up some 9mm and .45acp Herters at Cabela’s yesterday in new style boxes. These boxes say “Made in USA” on them, and the headstamps are something new, saying “USA”. The boxes make no mention of who or where they are produced, and only show Cabela’s distribution center address of Sidney, Nebraska (which BassPro announced in March that they were going to close). Fiocchi seems to have loaded this ammunition line in the past, and the Cabela’s website currently states that Sellier & Bellot loads the ammo, but that would not be “Made in USA”, so not sure.
There are no lot numbers evident on the box, other than maybe the impressed numbers on the end flaps, shown in photos below. PD80 on the 9mm and PC92 on the .45acp

All of the previous forum threads on Herters ammo from Cabela’s are spread around several threads / posts, and I might try to funnel all of the headstamp or box images into this thread to make it simple to look through, or anybody else can too.
