[quote=“TonyE”]It seems that although the majority of the Thomas French drill rounds made by Kynoch were of the “normal” type a number of variations exist. I have seen the fluted type before, although I do not have one, and there are even chromed ones.
I have another variation as well, where the base is open and filled with a wooden plug.
Both you Mr.B and Mr.M are scrap metal collectors. Any interesting variations belong with a real .303 collector!
Many thanks for that, I thought you’d come up trumps. To think I nearly cast this into the outer darkness that is my duplicates box.
How right you are, I do have a penchant for scrap metal and other such rubbidge. I only started collecting drill and dummy cartridges to stop the disappointment of leaving meeting empty handed. New scrap metal is getting hard to find and of such things as this cartridge are slippery slopes made!
