    Could be that it refers to the activity i.e. 'target practise' rather than the manufacturer?

    TPE or TPZ can't see anything for just TP

    I think it's Ruag Swiss ball, target or other variations.

    There you go feller some light reading ,
    Service ammunition can be classified into four broad categories - ball, incendiary (I), high-explosive (HE) and armour-piercing (AP) - any of which may also be equipped with tracers (T) so that the gunner can observe the accuracy of his shooting. Other common designations are SAP (semi-armour-piercing), TP (target practice), SD (self destruct), APDS (armour-piercing discarding-sabot) and APFSDS (armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding-sabot). The terms HV (high or hyper velocity) and SV (super velocity) are sometimes used to designate lightweight projectiles (usually AP).
    up shot looks like .308 target practice
