Does anyone know anything about Federal ammo that has "NT" on the headstamp? Is it safe to reload? I noticed the inside of the brass is incredibly clean, even as I found it.

The headstamp says "FC 9MM NT", never seen it before.

Anyone know anything about this brass?

The Federal NT brass is from their Ballsticlean line of cartridges. The cases are reloadable.

Do you suppose NT stands for "non-toxic"?

I also noticed that the primers appear to be crimped in place. I haven't decapped the brass yet, so I can't say for sure. But when I put regular FC brass next to this stuff the primer pocket does definitely look different around the edge of the primer.

Thanks for the response so far.
