A neighbor recently gave me an ammo can containing 440 rounds of 5.56 ammo. The headstamp is TZZ, dated 00 with the NATO circle & cross. All the rounds have a green tip. I'm thinking that it is IMI 62 gr. Am I correct?

Yup, sounds like IMI M855

Does your neighbor want to give anymore away?

There was more. Several hundred rounds of .308, 30-06, 9mm, 40 S&W, .44 Mag, .270, and .45 ACP. All total a little over 1,000 rounds. He is going blind. He already sold his guns and had this ammo in small batches he wanted to get out of the house.

That's got to be awful. Sounded like a big hobby for him.

Yes, it's IMI ammo-and thus good stuff.

My sympathy for your neighbor. That's a real bitch, particularly for someone who has invested a lot of time and money into a definitely vision-related hobby.
