Bullet ID needed


This from another forum.

This bullet is loaded in a '43 LC Cal .30 (30-06) case. Five round holes in the ogive of the jacket.

Someone suggested it’s from a .303 Incendiary cartridge stuffed in an LC case. I SWAGed it’s a dingbat.

Anyone recognize it?



Cartuccia per mitragliatrici cal. 7.7mm tipo Perforante-Incendiaria…in short its an Italian .303 Armour Piercing Incendiary. The blue colouring indicates a phosphorus filling as opposed to the more rarely found green-tipped chemical filling.


Thanks Jim.
