OMA 88?

Omark Industries, Lewiston, Idaho; USA. Short range training round, 1988. From a series of developmental efforts
in producing a low cost aluminum cased blank for the U.S. Military.

There is also an “OMA 88” with a blue plastic projectile.

The blank is a “CCI 86” with and extended case and star crimp with blue sealing.

The headstamp change from “CCI 86” to “OMA 88/89” reflects a modification in the manufacturer’s designation from “Omark Industries, Inc.” to “Omark Sporting Division of Blount, Inc.”, which occured in 1987. Box labels of both headstamp variations are just marked “Omark Industries, Lewiston, ID”, however.
