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

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

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.
