Last year at the int. ECRA meeting in the Netherland, I bought 2 .303" ball rounds produced by Eley Bros (see image) from mr. P. Smith.
unfortunately I cannot reproduce the info that came with it.
so maybe one of you guys can help me with this query:
- are these cordite MKII ball rounds or BP MKII?
- what is the estimated production date?
- There are no fixation punch marks on the cartridge case mouth, is this because these rounds were produced for commercial use and not for military use?
- based on the size of the primer, I guess this is a boxer primer, can anyone confirm this?
Thanks for the help.
all the best, Joost
