FMB was a headstamp used, in different forms, by several Spanish and Portuguese speaking nations. Usually, the "FM" is for the local version of millitary manufacutre ("fabricas militares", for example) and the location of the loading arsenal.

However, it has to be NCNM (non-corrosive/non mercuric), as very few facilities loaded corrosive rounds in western calibers after the sixties.
