Different 338 Lapua brass--pic

Different headstamp. Certainly appears to have different flash hole size--more obvious if you have the in hand. The one on the right is one that Kirby sent me. The one on the left is one I picked up a year or so ago. What gives?

I have 100 in use and a new box of 100 on the shelf. Both are like the one on the right and were bought in the last year. ??

Thank you. That must be it: Headstamp Codes on Small Arms Ammunition and scroll down to HP.

The question is, is it produced to the same specification? The flash hole certainly seems bigger in the HP stuff. What else is different?

Anybody else make 338 Lapua brass? Should you buy only Lapua made 338 Lapua brass? Experiences? Opinions?
