    That's Portuguese milsurp....

    I knnow, I ran about 80 rds thru the CETME this weekend, also 70's maunfacture.

    Used to get a 200rd Battlepack for a mere 38 bucks...in aught-2. I can prolly post a photo of the headstamp, if I go look in my collection. Markings on the 20rd cardboard box match the headstamp.

    Thanks, Do you know what it looks like in the case? Mine's sealed and I hate to break the seal just too look into it. Do you have a pic of the headstamp?
    What kind of bullet is it, the guy I got it from said that it was "match" ammo, but I think it's just 147 ball.
    TIA
