Further to my recent posts ref 8mm lebel rounds, i have some other bullets that i would like to try and identify. All these were found in the River Thames also. Pictures and specifications follow:
Tracer? Diameter at base ~7.7mm, Length ~37mm, Weight ~128 grains
Diameter at base ~7.5mm, Length ~30mm, Weight ~201 grains
Diameter at base ~7.6mm, Length ~31mm, Weight ~178 grains
Diameter at base ~.303", Length ~32mm, Weight ~205 grains
Diameter at base ~7.6mm, Length ~27mm, Weight ~139 grains
I think the round nose types may be early .303 british, but I am unsure as to the actual Mk. as they all seem to have slightly different profiles. Any info would be much appreciated. Cheers, James
Does anyone know anything about british AA shell fuses? I have an upper time ring from what appears to be a type 700 Mk II fuse that i have not come across previously. I have some pictures if they may help. Again any info would be good!
