Recently acquired…A 20 round box of Winchester WW1 .303 British (contract) headstamped W 14 VII. The box is completely plain with no labeling. Bullet is 174 gr. CN with two knurled cannelures and raised W in the lead at the base.
I collect US made .303 British and don’t recall seeing a WW1 Winchester round like this, ever. All that I have seen until now have W at 9 o’clock and the year of manufacture at 3 o’clock.
Any input appreciated.
Does anyone have paperwork regarding Allied contracts with US companies for ammunition in WW1 ?
