    Brass Head Stamp

    I have two small batches of "FC" brass in 308. The first came from Federal (GMM) and has the second stamp "308 WIN". The second came from SW AMMO (their M118LR load) and has a second stamp "12". My questions are are they both Federal and are they otherwise identical (except for the Stamp)?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Thanks Randy. I had looked there earlier but it help in this particular case.

    Sorry Adam - I answered Randy without seeing your post. I don't see that the primer is crimped, but there is a blue sealant (?) around the primer, which I haven't tried to decap yet. Only twenty cases, so no big deal. I'll do as you say and weigh them. Thanks.
