box and 10 cartridges
sealed buff cardboard box with salmon pink label printed in black, containing 10 centrefire cartridges.
Description: an example of an interwar commercial sporting cartridge box for smokeless amunition by Kynoch. The reference to 'Mark VI' is to general configuration and bullet weight, but this is an expanding sporting version. Many military officers purchased a sporting rifle in .303 (BSA offered at least four versions) which could also be used with military ammunition if necessary, so it was desirable that both sporting and military cartridges should shoot to the same sight setting. As this is ICI marked, it post-dates 1925.
