Headstamp is H X P 63. Length is about 2.5inches, ID of the case mouth is .305. Found a half dozen at the range today and don't recognize it.

It was made by: Greek Powder & Cartridge Company, Athens, Greece, in 1963. At that time, the Greek military was armed with M1 Garand rifles they received from the U.S.

Hope this helps.
