Some background information from previous discussions here on the Forum:
TAA = US Dept. Of Defence code for 205th Arsenal in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, off shore contract.
Quote: "Lew, these cartridges were made by The 205th Arsenal in Kaohsiung, Taiwan (ROC). It was a DoD contract placed with General Dynamics that was subcontracted to this Taiwanese arsenal (used to be the factory no. 60A). This order solicited 5.56 mm M855 Ball and 7.62 mm M80 Ball and M62 Tracer, but only ball cartridges were supplied. Tracer loadings were sub-sub-contracted with PMC (PSD headstamp) and linked mixed with TAA ball.
Below is the can label showing amoung other info the cartridges were made by TAA (and PMC), dated 2008. The can was empty when purchased.
Below are 2 photos of the same manufacturere stamp found on the lid hing end of the can, 07 = 2007, date of manufacture, M19A1 = model of can (box), GF = manufacturer, who is GF?
Any comments, discussion, answer are most welcomed.
