Arrow 7.62 x 51 Ammo ID?

I recently purchased som 7.62 x 51mm ammo that I can't identify.

The headstamp is 7.62 x 51 O.F.N. 32-69.

I know part of the headstamp is the caliber, and I think that 32-69 means that the ammo was manufactured during the 32nd week of 1969.

Does anyone know what the O.F.N. stands for and what country manufactured this ammo? Also, is it corrosive or non-corrosive?

Anyother information that you have would be appreciated.

TIA
