If someone can verify this for me, I would be most appreciative.

If I remember correctly, IMI used both the IMI and TZZ marking on their headstamps. Is this correct?

My case of IMI M855 just got here today by UPS and is marked with the NATO headstamp and TZZ, 00; which tells me that it was made by IMI in 2000. The green painted tips would also indicate that it is M855 ammo.

Could someone verify for me that my reading of the headstamp is correct?

Yiddish is a branch of German, and uses the Roman alphabet, just like English, but Hebrew characters were used.

What's the Yiddish word for Bedbug?

You and I have seen that on "M*A*S*H", I think the correct 3-letter word for Yiddish bedbug is "VOT"....

Now get back to your ship.

I recently bought some IMI M193 from Botach. One case had headstamps marked TZZ 01 the other case had headstamps marked IMI 02. Ammo and packaging was otherwise the same. It would seem that there was a change in headstamp on ammunition intended for the commercial market about 2002.
