Can anyone say if this ball and A.P. is safe to use in the M1A without the Nato cross on the head stamp?

The photo below is AP

Looks to be Israeli stuff.

But I have been wrong on more that one occasion.

9th is correct it is Israeli, first Number is the Lot, second Number the Year it was made, I have no experience with Israeli Ammo, but I would say that it was safe to shoot in Your M1A!

Best to avoid 7.62 Israeli with the TZZ stamp as some members have had major issues with it.

Research, the only good game in town anymore......

The top picture is of standard military surplus ammunition from Yugoslavia, '89, [ nny ], Berdan, zero crimp with red/orange primer sealant. Manufactured Oct. 1989. (PPU = NNY in English)

The bottom picture is of the TZ military surplus ammunition from Israel, [ú ö], zero crimp with red or black primer sealant visible, month-year lots. Such as...

12-68= Dec.1968.
9-72= Sept. 1972.
3-74= March 1974.
11-70= Nov. 1970.DI5

Again XXIV Corps is correct( I did not see the Top Picture)I have never had a Problem with Yugoslav Ammo, as a matter of Fact I think it is very Good!
PS The only Problem with Israeli Ammo that I have heard of is with TZ 80,it seems to have been made with unreliable Brass!

Thanks for the replies.
I guess it would be safe to assume that both would be ok given that the A.P. does not say TZZ. I've had the AP rounds for about fifteen years. They were sold as battlefield pick-ups for ( I think ) $50-75.00 a thousand.Also in the mix was F.N. but they have the nato cross. Most had some discoloration.

The lost art of Research is doing great...

m14nm,

So the big question still stands, what is the headstamp on the military surplus AP ammunition then? Is it Lake City maybe?DI5

This is the head stamps of the Ap. Sorry if I wasn't clear.
