I got this bullet today from a fired .303 case that had been fitted with another bullet to make an inert round. Another inert .303 that came with it was fitted with a 7.92 s.S heavy ball bullet.
The .303 bullet is a .311 Calibre, CN Jacketed, not magnetic tracer projectile with the remains of a red colour tip, of which 90% has worn away. To my knowledge, the UK never used red tips on .303 Tracer, other than possibly for contract loads. The overall length of the projectile is 1.45" (35.68mm), and it has a knurled cannelure. Is this a British made .303 Tracer bullet for a contract. or manufactured by a country other than the UK?
