    I'm sure that its a .303 round, I just tried putting it into an old .303 shell case I have and it fits perfectly. And im keeping my relic sites to myself for just now just incase theres more to be found

    Thanks for the help

    Nice find. Definitely a snub nose 303 rifle round, circa WW1.

    Should find plenty more with the metal detector.

    Good luck

    It's a shame you live so far away otherwise I'd offer to take you on a trip relic hunting to see if it is technique or your detector

    What are you using ?

    A lot of the time its the distance that makes the problems but its just one of those things we have to deal with, makes interesting road trips though

    And trust me, its the detector....

    Thanks
