While sorting out 9mm cases, I came accross these wierdos!

1. A-MERC 9MM
2. MRP 9mm LUGER
3. CBC 9mm
4. G.F.L 86 (w/NATO cross)
5. DFA NT 9mm LUGER
6. 9X19 C J 93 (letters C&J are on opposite sides of the primer)
7. LE 9mm LUGER
8. 9x19 L Y 92 (letters L&Y on opposite sides of primer
9. MAL 9MM 7-85
10. 9mm PARA 93 w/triangle
11. 9mm-LUGER S B (not S&B, but S B)
12. HP GEND. 87
13. DAG 9x19 Gend 89
14. NIC 88 9mm (w/triangle)
15. IVI 9mm LUGER (I know this is the Canadian ammo maker but don't recall their name or location)
16. E L D 9MM
17. I've come accross Speer and FC cases that have the letters "NT". Any ideas what this stands for?

BTW, all of these are boxer primed.

Well, the GFL is easy, it's Fiocchi's headstamp.
MRP is MagTech's headstamp.

Don't know the rest off-hand.

johnwill, GFL Giuseppi Fiochi Ltd.? With the Nato cross must be Italian military cases.

I've also seen MagTech use cases marked "CBC". Any idea who make these cases?

Good work, PackRat!

The search continues!

There was some company I bumped into on the internet that offers CDs that identify every type of small arms ammo in the world. But the price was outrageous!

Regards! DaMan

A-MERC = Sucks
Oh! I'm sorry, it means American Ammunition. Their cases are way too thick to handle spec bullets...toss 'em.

I don't know about the CBC, I just checked the headstamps on the ammo in my closet. I don't normally sort handgun ammo, of course I mostly load .45ACP.

Here ya go, if you can't find your headstamp on the list below, it's probably handmade! BTW, CBC is Brazilian Cartridge Company.
