Hey guys, after owning my HK45 for over 7 years, I finally got around to examining the test fire casings included in the box. The casings appear to be nickel plated and inscribed with "45AUTO+P" and two stars with a line between them. The head of the casing was painted red not just the primer. I'm not familiar with this headstamp and was wondering if any of the members could identify this headstamp. The HK45 was an American build. Thanks for any info!

I couldn't tell you with 100% certainty if it was Fiocchi ammo. Just the only factory loaded ammo using Starline brass in some of their loads, that I have seen. Others may have seen others. I have also seen Fiocchi with the GFL headstamp (Fiocchi's).

I do highly doubt that HK uses reloads for test firing though. I would suspect they would use factory loads.

Thanks for the fast replies. I guess it would be safe to assume that H&K USA reloads their test fire ammo. I wonder if they load to +P pressures or just use the +P brass?
I am not sure that because you got Starline brass as your test fire shell that this means that "H&K USA reloads their test fire ammo". What difference does it really make anyway where they obtain their ammo? I am pretty sure that it would be newly manufactured ammunition and that if it is labelled +P, then that is what it is.
