OH!

My apologies. I gave my brain a long weekend off...

In answer to your question, yes. The Hungarians manufactured both the earlier 8x50R and the 8x56R rounds at Csepel Arsenal located near Budapest. They may have manufactured it elsewhere, also.

The headstamp for ammo manufactured at Csepel is an intertwined AH in the 12 o'clock position and a year in the 6 o'clock position.

Guys thanks a million for the info. If you saw my other post with the Steyr M95 you wll notice I am trying to get the complete hungarian manufactured setup. Knowing to look for the AH headstamp will be very helpful.

These are the clips I have. I believe the one on Left is the AH and the one on the right appears to be the Hungarian coat of arms. Middle is CR possible GR. I also have a few with the Eagle and Swastika stamp.

Bogie,

Yes! That AH is the headstamp you are looking for!

Thanks for the information. I have yet to see a 7.5mm French MAS in my neck of the woods and likewise any more empty 7.5 cartridges.

Can't find a listing of headstamp

At the local indoor range, I picked up what appears and measures to be a 9mm Luger cartridge, with headstamp of WCCII (or CCIWI or possibly other iterations). Any ideas?

Found a whole pile of inside primed .45 Colt in an area downhill from Jerome, AZ that had been smashed and then burned (hence the pile). The "story" is that U.S. Army troops (probably from nearby Fort Verde) were instructed to do this to their fired brass to prevent the local Apaches from reloading and reusing it. Unfortunately, no legible headstamps. (Don't know if the "story" is true or not.)

Most likely it's WCC for Western Cartridge Company (of Winchester-Western) made in 2011.
