Cartridge id needed

Acquired a .303 British cartridge that has a head stamp of WRA49 at the 12 o’clock position and 303 at the 6 o’clock position. Is this a military or hunting/target cartridge? Has a pointed non-magnetic bullet.

I would say from the headstamp style, dated, that it was likely a military contract for someone. I had one when I was collecting .303, but don’t recall having any details on who it was made for.

Not sure why, but I seem to recall it was a contract for Pakistan.
