FC NT .223 Rem headstamp
« on: January 23, 2021, 05:36:46 PM »
I have a bunch of .223 Rem brass that have a FC NT headstamp.  The brass is once-fired and came from a law enforcement range.  I'm assuming that the FC denotes Federal.  What is the significance of the NT ?

Thanks, but help me out a little.  I don't shoot, nor reload, .223.  Is this brass desirable for reloading?

Nope but itís funny!!!😂😂😂😂  lighten up dude. 

Itís as valuable as any other .223 brass which really isnít that valuable.  .03-.08 cents per round for one fired .223 brass.   Itís not gold ya know.

All I was trying to do was ascertain if the brass was reloadable, so I could donate it to someone in need.

Hey Igor is that LE stuff primer crimped like military 556? and is it nickel or brass?

The FC brass may all be spoken for.  I have to count it and see how many are there.  The Speer brass is all nickel.  The headstamp says .223 Rem, and then Speer 12, or Speer 13, or Speer 14.  I do not reload .223, so I am not familiar with crimped primers.  I have been reading articles on how to tell if brass has a crimp, and it appears that this Speer brass has crimped primers.  Sorry that I am not more definitive.

Thanks, if itís crimped you should see 4 little divots evenly spaced around the edge of the primer in the pocket. Not really a huge deal and just takes a little more work on the pocket to make a new primer fit back in.  :tup:

Nickel stuff Iíve been staying away from. Iím pretty new at reloading so maybe those with more experience can chime in. Iím not sure with The smaller calibers but my experience with magnum rounds is that failures are common after only a few times loaded  :dunno: the nickel Although looks cool is just too brittle

Nope, no divots.  Thanks for taking the time to explain this "crimped primer" concept to me.

There also may be a type of crimp that is a a shiny sleeve Or ring around the outside edge of the Primer between the primer and case 

These are the two types I have encountered!
