    Probably older than that... site is mixed years from 1800s to WWI and WWII ... up to 1955

    Looking at shape of cartridge it is WWI ...

    K34 indicates Kynoch 1934,if only a single number after the K it means a different factory and not the year.try this site......Headstamp Codes - International Ammunition Association

    What you have there is a "Cartridge S.A. Tracer .303 inch G Mark I" made by Kynoch, Birmingham, UK. It is in excellent condition even if a bit dirty and it is a LIVE round by the looks of it.

    If you want a good website for headstamps and Small arms ammo - https://sites.google.com/site/britmi...03-inch-tracer and its the Tracer page for you
