Need help with an ammo question- 7.62x51

I have a case of Lithuanian ammo, and the markings on the packages state 180-GGG-04. I am trying to figure out what grain bullets are used for these rounds. Can anyone help with this? Here are the notes from the manufacturers website:


Cartridges cal. 7.62×51 mm NATO Ball

GGG cal. 7.62×51 mm NATO Ball rounds are being manufactured according to the requirements of STANAG 2310.

In 2005 cartridges were successfully qualified at NATO European Regional Test Center (ERTC) in UK and GGG gained right to mark its cartridges with NATO interchangeability sign.

GP11 is a marking of standard cal. GGG 7.62×51 mm cartridges produced in accordance to the requirements for M80.

Cartridges may be also manufactured according to the special requirements of the customer (high pressure, etc.).

The marking of a packing is standard or could be prepared according to the requirements of the customer. Cartridges may be linked, clipped or delivered in bulk packing.

Products have confirmed NSN (NATO Stock Number).

NATO Design number is AC/116-33A.

Yup, they should be in the 147-150 grain range. Good reloadable ammo.

I have shot a lot of the Lithuanian surplus ammo. Good stuff.

Where did you find it? I would like to get some more. I have not been able to run any down for quite a while.

Thanks very much, guys. Huge help!
Geetarman, I actually inherited it plus some other milspec sealed ammo and others brands when my brother passed away. I do not have a 308 so I am selling the ammo. If you're interested, email me at gwthomas82@verizon.net. I will send you a pic of all the types and quantities I have, and will sell below what retail value is.

Thanks,

Guy

I would recommend to be 100 percent sure.. get a bullet puller and weight the projectile on a digital scale or something and then youlk be certain 100% and wont go by what you read somewhere.

FYI, all the 308 I have is sold pending funds. My apologies, did not mean to use this thread for selling the ammo, just worked out that way.

My gratitude for the information on my questions to all who replied and emailed me.
