    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

    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...

    Yep... It appears to be a British 303 Dummy round. I have some of these in 3006.
