    Any military model 5.56 is all crimped I believe. As in the xm118? I think thats one of them.

    All federal .223 brass I have come across is crimped. PMC and Remington are NOT... That's just .223, like said above all 5.56 is.

    With my old eyes I gave up looking at fired brass primer pockets to figure it out. I just run them all through a swager and get it over with. Overkill but it is easier on my OCD tendencies.
