It was mentioned in the forums ( that Underwood loads LeHigh bullets in their cartridges with their headstamp.  But here is a recently purchased box with Starline headstamps.

Also, Richard's post above with the RattleSnake Ammo, has a different headstamp than mine.

The current example in the Headstamp Guide of Crosshairs on a Rimfire is from Wolf.  This is a box of Lapua 22LR with the same headstamp.  I've also included a 223 Rem Eagle-Eye headstamp.
Starting tomorrow I will be out of the Lab for 2 ˝ weeks, but I wanted to get this notice posted prior to my departure.  On Friday, November 20, 2015, the city of Fort Worth will announce an immediate opening for a Forensic Scientist position in the Firearm & Toolmark Unit.  The vacancy (Job Opening ID 2438) will be posted tomorrow in the jobs tab of the City of Fort Worth’s website:

I will be happy to answer any questions regarding this posting; however, I will not be available to respond to any queries until after December 7, 2015. 

The Fort Worth Police Crime Laboratory moved into its current location in the summer of 2010 and is accredited through the Texas Department of Public Safety and through the ASCLD/LAB ISO 17025 accreditation standard. 
And be careful -
Brownell's sells two sets of trigger weights.  The 'Universal' is NOT the one you want in the good ol' US of A.  It's part metric and part English, and maxes out at about 12 lbs, I think.   Unless you buy add-ons.  That's the 678-650-000WB Universal Trigger Weight System

'Armorer's/Shop' 678-017-000WB is the one American labs would probably prefer.

Guess which one I (accidentally) ordered........... >:(
