Thumbs down 308 W Headstamp

I have been cleaning up my surplus brass and I discovered some 308 Winchester cases that have a headstamp with 308W at 12 o’clock, “O” at 3 and 9 o’clock, and 82 at six o’clock. After a reasonable amount of research I have found no information on by whom or where this brass was manufactured. Has anyone ran into this headstamp and is it worth processing or just fodder for the scrap bin.

I wondered about that. The stuff is headed for the scrapper, anyway. I would give it away if anyone is interested in it.
