Can't get a decent pic with the crappy camera.
FC brass with a number at 3 and 9 o'clock,
year at the 6 position. All 2012.
Various numbers on the 4 I found.
Most likely FC ammo sold under Independence brand,
made in Israel. Federal told me last week they send
cartridge cups and components to Israel, I assume IMI,
they form the cartridge, assemble the ammo, then export
finished product to US. This is for Independence 5.56x45
ammo. Other calibers are made in other factories. I can't
determine if this brass has bad primer pockets like FC AE223,
I would guess it's GTG if IMI formed the catridge. Have 200+
pcs of the stuff, sure would like to know if it's really OK.
Thanks John. I sized them with no problem but never came across
the headstamp and the numbers. Doing PP's tomorrow.
It was 200 free 1x so I figured it should be GTG.
