Looking to find out who made a 7.62 tracer round with "RG L5A3" along with a manufacture date of 74 plus a nato cross/circle headstamp.

These rounds are in a lot of Malay 7.62 with a manufacture date of 9-85. This ammo is the lot of ammo that we have been having problems with no powder in the rounds. Luckly this morning the primer didnt move the bullet far enough down the barrel and the next round didnt seat in the chamber and jamed the minigun. We have not been so lucky in the past and have blown up a couple minis.

I realize im asking alot, but I dont have alot of time to spend on the net. I need to know who made the ammo and where your got the info from for my report up the chain to the embassy

RG? Radway Green? Brit ammo?

If it IS Radway Green, the ammo should be the good stuff. RG .308 surplus was really sought after here...I had one 500 round can of it, and haven't been able to find any more of it again.

Brit ammo would make sense since they were all over Malay back in the 70s, (or was it the 60s) doing counter G ops.

Thanks again ARFKOM,

Radway Green is some of the best .308 I've ever shot.

Im sure it is great ammo when properly stored ect. 30 year old tracer that has been exposed to the elements aint gonna work.
