I bought some 1k rounds from southern ammo, after sorting out the first 500 here are what the stampings are.

LC - guessing Lake City. just 1 round.
A with a plus inside a circle 7.62
IVI
IMI
FN
FNM
SMI
TZZ
TZ
WCC
and this one


Also received some stamped SF with an I directly accross from a friend of mine.

sure could use some input on what this ammo is and is there any of it that I should stay away from?

Is there a website I can check what this ammo is?

Hey sned45,

LC would indeed be Lake City Ammunition Plant, Lake City, MO.
The plus inside of a circle is the NATO head-stamp.

IVI = Industries Valcartier Inc., Valcartier, Quebec, Canada

IMI = Israel Military Industries, Tel Aviv, Israel

FN = Fabrique Nationale d'Armes de Guerre (FN), Herstal, Belgium

FNM = F?brica Nacional de Muni??es de Armas Legeiras, Chelas, Portugal

SMI = Societ? Metallurgica Italiana, Campo Tizzoro, Italy

WCC = Western Cartridge Company (now Winchester) (Olin), East Alton, IL

TZ & TZZ = Israeli Military Industries, Tel Aviv, Israel

SF = Soci?t? Fran?aise des Munitions, (G?velot S. A.), Place Jules G?velot, Issy-Les-Moulineaux, France

The pictured cartridge I believe is also Israeli. Is that a K or an X stamp at the 12:00?

I thought I'd heard once that the pictured cartridge with the Israeli "n" head-stamp had some problems.. But that may have only been with a certain batch.

From what 762x51 I've fired over the years from that list, the Lake City (Federal), FN, FNM, WCC, and IMI should be fine and non-corrosive ammo.
Not sure about the others as far as corrosive or performance.

Sounds like I'm safe shooting it. to be safe I'll put some windex on the gun when done shooting.
