|303 ~ MarkVIIIZ
This is a scarce, if not rare, speciman
because only one batch was produced
in Canada by C.I.L.(Canadian
Industries Limited) Defense
Industries, in 1942.
The cartridge also differs
from other standard MarkIIIZ 's by
the small primer pocket, used only
in this Canadian production.
The cartridge has a 175 grain G-M
projectile with cannelure, and was
loaded with 41 grains of N.C. powder.
