ID this ammo please
 
Anyone know what this is? Looks like 7.62x51 NATO by Winchester but I'm not sure. My rifle seems to like it a lot, tho :D

Yup, looks like 7.62x51 NATO. The NATO stamp is the cross with the circle around it.

What does the box say?

Winchester, most likely .308 nato spec

according to this wiki the headstamp is nato made by western cartridge company most likely the 09 is a year code.

Thx all for the reply. The box is white with no marking, I was given 3 boxes of the ammo. Shot some in my .308 Remington 700, it seems the rifle love it, no problem doing .5" grp at 100 yards. in fact it shot better than the regular Winchester .308win i brought.

BTW, I pull a projectile out and weight it, it is about 147gr.
