Default Identify this bullet?

Got a bag of these that had 57 of them in it for $4.00. Figured they were worth it no matter what they were.

They are NOT Lapua 155gr Mega, which is what I figured they were. I have some of those and they are made differently.

These weigh 155.5gr, give or take a couple tenths. Measure .264"x 1.285ish. They are a "protected point" with a slightly resessed nose, like a tiny hollow point. They have a thick tapered jacket with a heavy solid base and a thin cannelure groove followed by what looks liked a tapered crimp groove for roll-crimping on a cast bullet, then another deeper one of these "crimp grooves" that is backward a little bit further back. They look like they'd be a "big game" style bullet, as I'd be surprised to find one of these expanded past that crimp groove area due to the thickness of the jacket there and overall bullet length.

Anybody recognize them? Norma Oryx or something?
