Anyone know this Head Stamp

Recommended Posts

I have been finding quantities of 9mm brass on our public Range and havent a clue of its brand.

The head stamp reads: HP (+) L7 A 1 91

The plus sign is in a circle and the “A” is questionable it could be a symbol like an A without - “/\”. Also, there is a RED coating around the primer. The weight of the case is a little less then Winchester brass.

I cleaned a dozen and loaded them. They’re tight. All primers went in okay, when I case sized them in my Loan Wolf Barrel not one came out when I flipped it. No problem in my stock Glock barrel.

I Anyone recognize this Head Stamp?

Thanks,

LarryP

The cross in a circle means the ammo is loaded to NATO specifications. The cases marked "L7A1" are most likely Hirtenberger brand and that's some hot loaded 9 x 19 ammo.

The inside reads SV3890 HP 90

Saw old Isreali and Czech sub gun ammo make major through a 6" barrel BHP back in the pendulum days. It can be done.
