I was reloading some mixed 9mm brass a friend gave to
me. I recognized most of the headstamps/brands such
as WIN, and R-P.

Here a few stamps/codes that I hadn't seen before,
does anyone know the brand/maker?

CBC
MFS
nny
NPA

Just curious...

CBC - made in Brazil
MFS - made in Hungary or Nepal
nny - made in Yugoslavia. The letters "NNY" are actually Crillic letters equal to PPU which is also made in Yugoslavia
NPA - made in both South Africa and Prague. Contractors for Taiwan - (National Police Administration)

Here is a fairly decent link to headstamps:

THANKS for the headstamp info. It seems that a lot of
our 9mm ammo is now imported.

Be careful with the MFS cases, I had a 380 case blow out
with a reload in one. While the load was extreme the
case wasn't up for the task. In the 380's the MFS had a
radius web which was deeper than the primer flash hole.
