Mags, my case color 30-30 starts with WTTCC. The TTCC is easy enough to figure out, now just to figure out what the W stands for.
I’m thinking the W is for Wisconsin.

I second the notion that the W is for Wisconsin. I think that occurred when production of the centerfire rifles (and shotguns) was moved from 'Jersey. I might've even read it somewhere, since it was kind of a big deal here :) .
