I'm in the process of reloading a big batch of 5.56 ammo. I ran across a couple of hundred cases that I'm in doubt about. The headstamp is C J 8. The C is at 10:00, the J is at 2:00 and the 8 is at 6:00. The primer is crimped using 3 stakes. The cases are brass, boxer primed. I've done some research and the nearest thing I can find is it might be Norinco 1988. It sized and trimmed OK, i'm just wondering if anyone has run into this stuff before and if it's safe to use.
