I have seen one of the new 7.62 Nato rds that appears to have a similar core to the 5.56 M855A1 rd. Head stamp is "WMA" 2016 with Nato cross. Who know the correct model # and can ID the Mfg?

Did my own research, looks like the mfg is Winchester. Wonder what the MA stands for?

The U.S Military requires a headstamp that identifies the manufacturing facility that produces the ammo.. Winchester either choose, or more likely was assigned WMA, when they began production in their new Mississippi plant..Some say WMA is Winchester Military Ammunition.. Some say the M is for Mississippi, which makes sense since it's stamped on other calibers, not just military.. You can check it out..
