Ray,

Left; 7.62mm Ball Tel Aviv, Israel, May 1973.

Middle; 7.62mm Cartoucho con bala Trazadora M.963 (tracer) Fabrica Nacional de Municoes de Armas Ligeiras, Portugal, April 1976.

Right; 7.62mm Cartouche a Blanc (plastic blank) SFM, France

To be accurate, the letters on the Israeli round, are (right to left), Tof and Tzadik, which stand for Military Industries. The offices are outside of Tel Aviv, but the ammo factory is further north, near Natzeret (Nazareth).

Note that the Israeli cartridge has a wood bullet. That would make it a _______?
