Description

This is an inert experimental .303 steel smoke reducing bullet. In 1945 a trial was carried out with a belted bullet. The aim being to reduce the amount of smoke when a bullet was fired. Analysis had shown that the smoke was, in part, due to the exposed portion of the lead antimony core and the copper and nickel in the enevelope. The trials included normal Mk 7 ball bullets with the base protected by cups or pads to cover the lead core. Later in the trials a solid mild steel .303 inch bullet was employed having two integral driving bands. This reduced the smoke but created much more barrel wear. (.303 inch Labbett and Mead page 44)

The case has no h/s and no primer and may not be original to the bullet.
