http://cartridgecollectors.org/

I found this website while researching some 7.5 French ammo I bought. Has a really good listing of headstamp codes and other useful info when IDing ammo or for collectors information.

Thanks for the link!
Here's another good site for headstamp pictures and cartridge info:
http://www.municion.org/

It's in Spanish but there's a lot of information there if you hunt around.
