View Full Version : Ammo Headstamp ID

I would appreciate help in ID on this ammunition, headstamp is shown in the picture. Purchased from Navy Arms as "German Battlepacks". Packed in heavy brown vinyl battle packs with no marking and ammo is in 20 round brown cardboard boxes with no markings.

I believe that is Hirtenberger from Austria. Good Stuff. These are Berdan primed unlike the later stuff that is actually advertised and marked as Hirtenberger.

er, I just bought some Hirtenberger in dark green battle pack. I was under the impression it was all Boxer primed? The last 400 I deprimed/resized were...

And you used a Berdan depriming rig, right?
Some rumors persist that green lacquer is Berdan, and red is Boxer. I can neither confirm or deny ........
