Unknown .303 SLICS Find

I found this .303 at SLICS. It is very similar style to British post-war production, but could have been made elsewhere. One thing I did think is that it may have been produced by PMP of South Africa for covert supply to Rhodesia. The headstamp is “.303” at 6 O’Clock.

Does anyone have any info on this round?


I think your suggestion may well be correct. It rather looks like a PMP commercial headstamp with the manufacturer removed to preserve anonymity.

It would be worthwhile comparing the font of the “.303” with a PMP commercial round. Unfortunately i do not have one to hand.
