I have several unmarked boxes of ammunition. I'm guessing its from the late 90s. There are two different types of rounds, amd I'm tying to ID them.

Exibit a.
F C brass marking, projectile looks similar to Federal HST

Exibit b.
R - P brass marking, feels much hotter, and has excessive muzzle flash.

The FC head stamp round looks like a Federal Classic "Blue Box" JHP factory round.

The R-P head stamp looks like a reload of some type. Different colored primer and marks on the case head from previously being fired.

Federal stuff looks like old hydroshok.

Remington stuff looks like their bulk box stuff that or it’s the HST stuff.

I think if the federal is hydra shock there will be a post sticking out down inside the hollow point cavity. Can't tell from the picture.
