Federal Cartridge Co. 7.62x51mm unkown match(?) cartridge


#1

Need help identifying this 7.62x51mm cartridge from Federal, appears to have an open tip match (OTM) bullet. Dated 2011.

Cartridge profile

Headstamp, light blue primer seal, typical of Federal

OTM(?) bullet

What does “M1A” in the headstamp signify? Designation for this cartridge? Can anyone provide a picture of the box label?

Any input is welcome!

Thanks,

Brian

Hi Brian,

Look for American Eagle product A76251M1A.

Fede,

WOW, thanks for pointing me in the right direction, obviously I have never heard of the M1A cartridge until now!

The name or term “M1A” is a proprietary title for Springfield Armory Inc.'s semi-auto M14-pattern rifle.

There is also a companion load in .30-06 (AE3006M1). Both were introduced in early 2009.
