303 colour ID


Howdy collectors , another colour ID question this time on a 303 with headstamp F N 50 , it has a Purple bullet tip , wide Purple neck seal , and a Purple primer seal , I have called this colour purple but you may also call it Cerise or Red ??? is it a Tracer , AP or ?? thanks randy


The FN Contract .303 for Allied nations in Europe using British equipment, used US style colour codes.
The “Cerise/wine red” colour is Tracer.
Quite a common Non British .303 type.
