Gday, another day metal detecting brings in more finds I’m unsure about.
From my metal detecting journeys I now have upwards of 750-800 .303 projectiles, but pulled 3 out today which are a little bit longer, (by 2.5mm-3mm)
They have the same rifling as all my other .303 rounds, but rather than a flat base, it’s slightly angled in (looks like it’s been put in a pencil sharpener)
I’m yet to find where they were shooting from (unless they picked up every single shell) so Haven’t really got a good date on all the .303s.
I did find one shell, stamped “CAC VI 2 12” which is now my oldest dated shell!
They also have a different cannelures compared to every other I’ve found.
Any information is appreciated, cheers, hamish.
