This is a Practice-Round....No danger whatsoever... Notice that there's no primer for a firing-pin to strike...
Is that because of the red paint? Any idea what weapon it's for?
Thanks for the help
I don't see any red paint in the pics. It's for and Enfield that's a .303 round. The sides are fluted, and there's no primer in the pocket, so this would tell the armorer or whomever, that it was a Dummy round.
Sorry the pic is so small, but this shows what a live .303 round would look like
47th MP Co/47th Inf Div 1983-1988
583rd Ord Co 59th Ord Bde Muenster, W Germany
Looking for P37 ammo pouch with No4 bayo frog
Look at the bottom of the bullet...there's no primer, never had one...Never held any gunpowder either... The ribbed casing identifies this as a practice round at first glance...I agree that it's British...
Brilliant thanks guys .
I'm away on work at the moment but just looking at the pics it looks like there is a bit of red paint in the fluted bit

Yep... It appears to be a British 303 Dummy round. I have some of these in 3006.
I specialize in M1 carbines and Lugers.
