View Full Version : Help IDing headstamp
March 02, 2001, 18:05
I just rcvd some new ammo and would like to ID it.
The headstamp says
H O 7.62
They are in 20rnd cardboard boxes. The box has the NATO crossed circle but the rounds do not.

I can only guess they may be Greek (Hellenic, as in HXP .303). This is a swag. Any other info available on the box?

Box just says
20 ROUND 7.62 X 51mm
Someone has placed an additional piece of paper over that reading "20 Rounds 308 WIN"
They are from J&G Sales and are supposed to be Portuguese, but all the Portugues stuff I've seen is in 200rnd battle packs and stamped FNM

See my post from from earlier this week. Also your HO headstamp is probably HD. This and H1 ammo is generally sold as Portugues, but is probably from Singapore. I shot a box again today and it is HOT. It cycles my FAL at gas setting 7 (all the way open). I should get my Chrony any day...Can't wait to see how fast this and other stuff is. Will post results Ray
