Head Stamps Are mixed. (LC, WCC, FC)" The package says 223 brass on it. Now is there a difference between 223 brass and 5.56 brass?
Headstamps will be marked with "LC" and the last two digits for the year of production. This ammunition is non-corrosive in boxer-primed, reloadable brass cases.

TRACER. The A79 Ball case is the earliest dated headstamp seen in tracer up to now. RSA 7.62 NATO tracer rounds all had the standard 'G' on the headstamp, but on the 5.56 the only distinguishing feature is the standard red P/A.
