146gr FMJ ball w/ cannalure, boxer primed. Price tag says IMI on the side of it. Printing on boxes is in English.
Could this be Israeli?

I'm pretty certain TZ is one of the marks used by Isralie Military Industries to denote ammo loaded at one of their plants.
Some years ago a TON of this stuff came in to the country, apparently military surplus.
