The Browning coating applied to the brass is pretty cool! I can't really make out exactly what the headstamp is?

Are they worth buying? I usually shoot Federal aluminum in 9mm.

  I guess for practice they don't offer any advantage.

The Federal "Dot" (previous) and "Dot-Dot" (current) cartridges are "lead free", meaning no lead (or mercury) vapor and no lead particulate when fired. Many indoor ranges allow only these and others of the same type. Probably a good thing, for those who frequent indoor ranges. Not much indoor hunting or varminting going on, so practice is probably the target market.
