.303 British by Winchester, Black & White Box, Product Code With a "Q" Prefix- Q3235


#1

Below are photos of a 20rd box of .303 British by Winchester with a “Q” prefix product code which, as discussed before http://iaaforum.org/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13576, usually indicates a special production/contract loading. Possibly for a government or law enforcement agency.

Can anyone provide information for whom this was produced? Time frame, 1990’s ?
