Range Brass Head Stamps

Being a reloader I always look for brass at the range when I am up there. I lucked into a mess of 7.62x51 nato the other day. Most was LC-Lake City. But the other head stamps I do not recognise. SBS , CBB , PMJ. They are all nato stamped. Could someone shoot me a clue as to the origin of these three. Thanks

PMJ is the Poongsan Corporation, South Korea - probably date-stamped 2005, the ?only year in which the US military outsourced a substantial order for 7.62 and, apparently, .50 stamped PMS. See http://www.poongsan.co.kr/eng/product/pro_2_1.html

NESHOOTER . your link should be http://www.cartridgecollectors.org/headstampcodes.htm
SBS may be Santa Barbara, Spain
CBB may be Brazil
But I'm not sure

Well I struck out on all 3 on that site. I double checked and they are CBB 07-PMJ 06-SBS 06. I have never encountered them before

Old thread I know but I just ran across the CBB head stamp, the pdf above shows its German, I will see how it looks after shooting it then decide to reload or not.

Neruda has ID'd all 3 correctly. The IAA headstamp list is usually pretty accurate, but I don't believe it has been updated for a while.
