CBC is manufactured in the U.S. now under the Spec.'s of NATO so the headstamp has the NATO logo (+).

I have some 7.62 brass with a headstamp of "TAA". It isn't in the id website. Anyone know where it was made?

Yes hen0302, where do you keep finding this interesting brass at?

TAA stands for the Tel Aviv Arsenal, in Israel which started exporting small arm ammunition back in 1954. It came in TZZ headstamp also with the contracts to the United States.

TAA headstamp

I bought 500 pieces of brass at the local gunstore. It came from Everglades Ammo in Fl. The stuff comes sizes, polished, swaged, and trimmed. I've bought direct from them and usually most of the brass is Lake City, not this time. About half was SBS,PSD, PMJ, And TAA. Got a few pieces marked WCC, FC, And IVI. Got another question for you. Some ot the LC brass also has LR marked on it . Any ideas? All the brass has the NATO crosshair circle. Thanks for the help. I can see why you got the medal!

Social Security Administration? or Silver State Armory which manufacturers brass and ammunition.

www.ssarmory.com/

I can't help you, I have never tested it out before. I have not seen it in Gun Shows out West here in New Mexico to try.

Silver State Armory would be correct. After looking at the website it is the same stampings on some brass that I got in a mixed bag. A few pieces were a little too loose in the primer pocket for my preference. Just FYI for others.

Thanks for the info XXIV Corps, greatly appreciated.

Two of them had nearly no resistance while trying to seat them. One of them had so little, that as I tapped the head on my work bench, the primer started making it's way out.

m0nkee221,

You should start a new thread inside of the Ammunuition section about your find with SSA and their primers.

Thanks

I would appreciate help in identifying the origin of a cartridge. It has a brass case and is loaded with a (147 grain?) FMJ bullet. The primer has a 3 star crimp and is protected with green sealant. 80 appears at the 12:00 position (presumably 1980 production). 7.62x51 is visible at the 6:00 position. A five pointed star symbol is at the 9:00 position, and a six pointed star symbol is at the 3:00 position. Although I only have a few rounds, I'd like to know what this ammo is.

Here is a picture of the head stamp:
