Does anyone have any suggestions for the provenance of this 0,303" drill round?
The entire case and bullet are chrome plated. The bullet is non-magnetic. The primer pocket has no anvil or fireholes. The bullet appears to be soldered into the case as well as having three neck stabs. There is a suggestion that the flutes might have contained paint at some time.
The oddest part is that the base has been filed prior to it being plated and this has removed most of the markings save for the ‘VI’ seen in the picture. This is at 6 o’clock. If stared at long enough there is a suggestion of ‘R L’ at 12 o’clock.
In anticipation, Peter
