.308 headstamp question: TZ??

Got hold of some 7.62mm with the headstamp TZ 80.

T at 10:00
Z ar 2:00
80 at 6:00

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?

BTW, I've got 500rds w/ ammo can. Willing to sell / trade whole lot.

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.

Mike is right, TZ still is IMI and brass will come with both markings.
