    Thanks for the helpful replies.

    It was found amongst papers that all related to WW1 but this might be a false trail!

    It is certainly different from a .303 the length of the 'head' seems much longer.

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    It believe it is a 6.5X50mm Japanese Round.. The Three staked priming is generally associated with Japanese small arm cartridges...BILL
