I'm sorting some brass and came across a few with this headstamp.  Anyone know what the HE stands for?  I did a quick internet search and found nothing.  Figured someone in the forum who's smarter than me would know.

I'm sure the FC is federal cartridge.  The batch of brass has about 70 with "FC 270 Win" and ten that include HE.  Just curious what the HE is

"High Energy". 

Fed tried to match Hornady's "Light Magnum" line back in the day.

I only have half a box left of 3006 spr. 180 partition HE, which is unfortunate they shoot .5/.65 in my rifle. The factory specs. 2880 for 180 gr. Bullet.

I have a couple boxes each  of the bonded  bear law and nosler partitions. 180 grain 30-06. The partitions shot .6 and clocked 2888 out of a Remington 700 mtn rifle with a 22” barrel . Worked real good on a 6 point bull elk. I would love to know their recipe.
