7.62 NATO Caliber M62 Tracer, orange tip, brass case, brass percussion boxer non-corrosive primer. ring primer crimp, no visible primer sealant. 147 grain bullet with knurled crimp cannelure.   From tan 20-round cardboard box with black printing.  Sample is from a lot of "factory seconds" from Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, but marketed by Federal Ammunition for the commercial US market as "XM62."  Original DoD intended production that failed QC acceptance standards, usually for appearances.  In this example tip colors ranged from 90% to virtually missing.  Circa 2010  Unlike other examples of LC headstamps in the AFTE DB, this (being 7.62) doesn't have the "dot" headstamp markings of SCAMP production.  Except for box markings, might easily be confused with "stolen" miliitary inventory.

7.62 NATO caliber ammunition for US military snipers, now replacing the M118-LR load.  Still a 175 gr Sierra Match King Projectile, but with a match grade case, a more temperature stable propellant (with reduced muzzle flash), and a match grade primer with reduced (less violent) detonation to prevent excessive disruption of the powder charge.  Nickel primer, purple sealant, FC 09 headstamp.  Tan cardboard box, black printing, white plastic cartridge insert.  This particular lot designates May 2009 production at Federal Cartridge Co.
