    I've got some .308 ammo I don't recognize where from. Two different boxes, one marked "Pindad" with an arrow logo , the other marked "HP" in a circle.

    Can anyone ID the manufacturers and countries of origin?

    If you have any idea as to quality, that would be great too.

    Thanks

    Here you go:

    Pindad

    HP

    Indonesia and Austria. I'd venture to say, the quality on both is probably crap. And both are probably corrosive.

    Hah!
    Right on the origins...wrong on the review.
    Pindad is Indonesian, but decent ammo. About 99% sure it is non-corrosive, but clean accordingly or test.
    HP, is Austrian from Hirtenberg Patronenfabrik. Excellent non-corrosive ammo.
