    I am resizing a bunch of once fired brass I picked up. Most of it is LC 556 with a nato cross in a circle. Some of it has LC10 with the 10 being the variable year. The letters are spaced 90 degrees apart with no other markings. Is this Lake City brass also? Primers are crimped in both types.

    I finally got a picture of the brass I am talking about. The brass on the right is Lake City, how about the one on the left?

    Yes they are both LC. I don't know why they do that but they do. Maybe they came from different Nato Facilities so they got a different stamp or something.
