FC NX brass

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anyone familiar with brass with “FC NX 9mm Luger” head stamp? I’m assuming that it is federal. I’m familiar with NT but I’ve never seen NX and don’t see anything on a google search.

I was able to find that it is used in the non-toxic  Federal Premium BallistiClean frangie ammo. 

 

 if anyone has reloaded it, let me know.

I probably have not noticing it.  I shot some of that ammo at an indoor static steel shoot, and collected brass at the end of the night.  Only stuff I screen and toss is of course some of the plated steel stuff.  I deprime separate so anything with a stepped case gets scrapped then, and anything with a hard deprime (staked primer) gets put in a can for pocket reaming.  Basically if it causes no issues I pay no attention.

The current American Rifleman (6/19) has an article about Federal Ammunition and mentions their "Catalyst" lead free primers.  These were introduced rather quietly about 5 years ago and are stated to be robust and "duty-worthy".  I recall earlier lead free primers having a fairly limited shelf life but these apparently are very durable. 

 

I wonder if the new headstamp indicates these primers.
