Looks like military ball converted by the National Cartridge Company.
In the 1920s a company called the National Cartridge Company purchased surplus .303" ammo from the Cdn govt. NC then pulled the bullets removed the front of the jacket and swaged the lead nose and reseated the bullets. It was marketed in boxes very similar to those of DCCo. It gave trouble with the core blowing through the bullet leaving the jacket in the barrel.
