Yes, don't seem to be a battery problem. Other things to check would be :
1. Battery terminal connections. Remove, clean and retighten. Sometimes contamination would cause poor contacts resulting in insufficient current flow when required.
2. Battery grounding points. Check if the battery negative terminal to the transmission is securely tightened and check for frayed wires.
3. Check starter solenoid wire and cable connections. It could be the starter. Use a remote wire for the solenoid and apply battery voltage to test.
4. To test the discharge voltage, get someone to do the cranking and with voltmeter attached to battery terminals and when starter does not crank, read the voltage. If voltage drops below 10, the battery is failing. If the voltage remains above 10 volts, it is draining but not turning the starter, meaning the starter needs to be serviced. Carbons might be contaminated or running out.
