    British .303.

    You have mis read the Broad Arrow stamp for an "A".

    RL = Royal Laboratory, Woolwich Arsenal, Kent, UK.

    It is a Mark VII and it has been fired from a Bren Gun going by the indentation to the primer.

    Cheers, Ade.

    RAL might be R^L in which case it would be Royal Laboratories manufactured in 1932 mark 7

    I'm not sure of the RAL....it looks a bit more like RNL to me.....could be wrong but it looks like a Mk VII (Mk7) .303 case, MkVII round introduced around 1910.....the primer looks strange....its deformed outwards rather than having a neat firing pin indentation, suppose that could be the result of corrosion.

    Thank you.
    What is this thing in middle ? Where firing pin goes.

    The Bren firing pin is rectangular hence the shape, it has either been pushed out again by corrosion or possibly when it was fired suggesting unserviceable breech block.
