    Interesting - was this picked up at the range by chance?

    No. It came with other brass I got from a member here. I don't know where he got it. Some of the brass was virgin and some was fired. I haven't closely inspected this brass.

    Yep ... I have a '95 Winchester in .35 WCF. Another one of my "I'll get around to it one day ..." project guns ...
    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Does it shoot? Or is it a collection of parts?

    Looks like extra long 303 British. It would sure be a waste to case form it to 303.

    No it's complete with a reasonably good bore ... just haven't got to it yet. I bought an "orphan" fl sizer die on eBay and will use a .358 Winchester seater die to load them. I have some .405 Win brass that I could reform, or will need to stretch some .303 Brit or .30-40 Krag brass in my Kal Max case stretcher to make them full length. One day ...

    Want some?

    Sorry, I just realized you are north of here and sending brass is likely a problem!

    Maybe I should just blow this brass out to make "All Brass 2 3/4" 410 Hulls."

    What a waste!

    I'd love to have it, but as you say ITAR would not look kindly at you or me if you tried to ship it north of the border ...
