You won't find much stamping on a 5.56 NATO round other than the circled cross (means it meets NATO specs) and maybe a couple of letters.

(LC means it was made at Lake City Army Ammunition plant. the 1 & 3 is a date manufactured. The other marks [dots] are SCAMP markings..denoting which machine and station made that lot) Small Caliber Ammunition Modernization Program. There is a little formula for decoding the SCAMP markings.
NATO rounds don't need much info on the casing, as each round was intended to be fired just one time and not to be reloaded by non-NATO approved personnel. (yeah, I know, lots of civilians do reload surplus NATO casings)

Some of Remington's .223 may say REM and some does not.

It's not so much the pile of markings as it is getting a fairly accurate facsimile of it.

Go to any sporting goods store, buy some .223 or 5.56 rounds and take a picture of them.
Problem solved.

He probably isn't allowed to google anything other than shotgun or BB gun ammo where he is.

Probly not going to find any, most have been sold out for months. If you do find them they will be over double what they cost a while back, maybe triple.

Perfect, thanks. I got 3 or 4 to play with now and UPS says I should have the gold filament by Tuesday sometime. I'll post the finished ones if they turn out decently.
