I need some help identifying a cartridge. I would like to know who makes it and any other interesting info about it.

Here's the headstamp. On the top it appears to be a '188'.

And on the otherside I'm assuming an identifying mark for the munitions plant.

I've got around 60-75 of these, they come packaged ready to drop into ammo pouches.

Russian 147 grainers if I'm reading the stamp correctly. If a magnet latches to it, the round is post 1970 and has a mild steel core. Pull a bullet to check the weight and verify this.
