Here is a link to a web site that will tell what the head stamp on the brass is and where it came from. I have had a lot of people ask when I have sold some of my brass. I hope this will help everyone.

I just got a bag of brass from a guy at the range. It is marked IVI and WCC. As I was swaging pockets last night I was wondering the headstamps meant. That is a cool link.

Hey fellas

I have a half case, well was a half case, of Federal 223, head stamped "lc . o . oplus" oplus is the circle with the + sign inside. So, if "lc" is lake city but the case and small boxes say federal what gives? Is lake city part of Federal?


Thanks

Federal currently has the government contract to run the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant. One of the provisions of the contract is that they can utilize overrun or reject components and ammo for commercial sales. That's what you've got.
