Hi all,
I've read several times that you guys avoid AMERC cases like the plague.I find all kind of headstamps at the range,going from WW2 RA cases to 00:)confused:),to C3:)scratch:) to the usual brands like WW,RP,CBC,Starline,MFS,S&B,Fiocchi and all that jazz.Chances are that Amerc cases could make it into one of the plastic buckets I fill with range pick-ups if they're imported here, and after reading about how people steer clear from them I'd like to learn how to tell them from the rest.Are they stamped "Amerc" or are they stamped in another way?
TIA for reading,replying and....coping:)

Another good way to tell is when after you load them, you primers FALL OUT of the primer pocket...seriously.

But yeah, they are stamped "Amerc"

I keep a canary in my reloading room. If it passes out, I know there's an Amerc case nearby.

Hey! Be gentle here....... They even {now...?} claim to be using "new" primers in their ammo:
"AA assembles these components, along with premium powder, and new primers into new top quality ammunition." :eek:

"Made in America, By Americans, For Americans."

At least the Headstamp is large so it's easy to Spot! Then it's on to the Vise-Grips!!!

It's my firm belief that most Amerc cases in circulation don't get reloaded. I know that there seem to be about 500 shiny cases circulating between 6 or 7 of my closest shooting buddies. Nobody reloads it but they keep it and dump into one of their closest friends shooting bags while he is on the line. Gives us something to do when we aren't pasting.
