Have not posted in a while as I have had little time. Figured I would take 1/2 hour and contribute something possibly interesting.

Bought this the other day. I find it interesting. Might even try a bit of the ammo and see how it performs, maybe in a old sturdy bolt gun.

Berdan,.217" (5,5mm) primed. Don’t know if Corrosive or not (69 was one of those “change-over” years, where nearly all Western countries had or were changing to Non-corrosive type Primers (for 7,62 Nato especially).

“Mark IV” is a typical British oriented denomination, as is the Packet Label design and the Crate design etc. Even the Packing Labels are of British design origin.
