Thank you, photo received.
The date I’ve listed are ones of which I don’t have a photo. I do have the 1941 date. The MS GIIZ sounds interesting, but the Inert sticker sounds suspect. Unlike most .303s produced here, this version was filled with nitro cellulose powder. Perhaps the sticker was attached in order to ship the cartridge?? so may be a little misleading.
MF loaded the GI in 1941,1942 and 1943 and I have them on record.
What I haven’t seen are any with the MG headstamp. Footscray produced a list, for me, of calibres/loadings/dates manufactured from 1910, back around 1975. In spite of their great effort, there are some errors and many omissions. I think in the case of the GI tracer, the MG details should have been in the MH column, but I daren’t ignore it.
Likewise, while I have the greatest admiration for Barry Temple’s work, his details on the Australian .303 Tracers is not quite correct. Manufacture of the GII at MF commenced in 1941 through 1943. MH also produced this round in 1943 and 44, while MJ produced it in 1943 and 45, with the possibility they also did it in 1944. That I am still trying to prove.
