I found a large quantity of 7.62 military ball ammo at a good price. It is full metal jacketed ball ammo with a head stamp of IK08. What does anyone know about this? Is it ok stuff or crap? Is it reloadable? What is the weight of the bullet? I think is is Yugoslavian stuff.

IK 07 / IK 08 should be Igman from Bosnia. They have some pretty detailed information about their ammo on their website.

I've had a bad experience using Igman .223 brass for reloading. Primer pocket hole were way undersized and offcenter in the primer pocket. Busted decapping pins left and right. Maybe the .308 variety is a different breed. Ended up selling the 200rds of .223 to the scrap brass man. dozier
