    IMG_20200925_082915225.jpg Found this in a box of Winchester 9mm. The rest are just normal 115gr fmj. Of course this one is exactly the same only what I think is the stamp for military / nato. WMA for Winchester Military Ammunition. The circled + for nato. Just thought it was neat.

    I've never seen that headstamp. :confused::confused:

    NATO. no doubt. But Winchester normally uses "WRA" for Winchester repeating arms, or "WCC" for Western Cartridge Co.

    I only know from Google lol. They say the WMA is from a new plant. 20 of course being the year they were made. I actually just found a second one in a box of 100. It's about half a box now so no telling how many I've shot already. I don't know if they are different at all from the others. I hope they aren't much different. My canik is rated for +P but some guns aren't. I imagine that could cause a problem for people.

    Was it a box of "cheap" ammo? Often, manufacturers will include military over-runs since, you know, who cares. For most, as long as it goes bang...

    Winchester white box target fmj. So yeah lol. At least it's their own product. I found out that WMA is the stamp for the Oxford, Mississippi plant. That's about two hours from me so it makes sense.
