At the ECRA meeting at Bisley this morning I acquired a couple of .303 inch rounds I have been after for a long time.
The first was the aluminium cased Ball Mark VI round that dates from WWI. I have had the Mark VII version for some time and needed the Mark VI type.
However, the real star find was a Smoke Discharger E Mark IT designed for firing smoke grenades from armoured vehicles. It is one of the rarest .303 rounds and the first one I have found in fifty years.
If you are not a .303 fan it won’t mean much but it has made my year!
