    Wow, what a timely post!

    (How'd you know I was in the middle of processing & sorting 2500 9mm mixed headstamp brass?)

    I was curious as to the origins of some I've come across.

    Thank you for the link!

    What was the caliber?
    I have an idea, but the date is throwing me a bit.

    HPR

    ICC (no, not CCI)

    Thanks,

    Let's see if I can get an answer without having to register at Cartridge Collectors. In a batch of .30 Carbine mixed military and commercial cases I found several with the following headstamp:

    M1 30 (clearly a one and not an I, which is a listed headstamp for a French company)

    CARBINE (upside down from the M1 30 viewpoint)

    I'm thinking either Chinese or (much less likely) a military contract for some off the wall place where no manufacturer info is desired.

    Anyone know where this is from, I'd appreciate the info. All else fails I'll register with the collectors.org.
