Need Help to ID a 223 REM Headstamp


#1

Rec’d a fired case with the headstamp of: A USA 223 REM
Can anyone tell me anything about it (who the manufacturer is; the brand of ammo; the loading; etc.)…?
Thank You

Ron, This headstamp is the new Armscor USA headstamp! It replaces the “ARMSCOR USA” headstamp that I first noticed early this year on 9mm Luger. Just last month I found it on 9mm Luger so it is just showing up on the commercial market.

Cheers,

Lew

Lew, can you post a pic of the new 9mmP stamp?

Leon,

Here it is, and there is one in your box! Box is the standard Armscor that was used with the “ARMSCOR USA” headstamp.

Does anyone know how much of the manufacturing process Armscor USA is actually doing. The box says “Made in the USA” so I assume they must be loading with Armscor made components. I doubt the cases are US made but could be wrong. Their address is Stevensville, MT.

Any info appreciated.

Cheers,
Lew

Picked up a fired case in .38SPL today, with this style headstamp.
