    .303 AMMUNITION CAN

    Post by zekehp on Sun May 31, 2015 5:36 pm




    I have had this for years. 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" x 7 3/4" and approx 6 lbs. Stamped CANCO in an oval on the bottom. Any ideas as to what it would be used for? Lee Enfield, Bren Gun, RCAF Browning. Please advise. Thanks. Mike.

    Why don't you open it up and see? :) Just kidding, not something I have ever seen before either mate, although it does seem odd to go to all the trouble of sealing only 32 cartridges into a can.

    I have seen this can, it is fairly heavy. There is no way there is only 32 cartridges in it. I think it could read 132??

    Yes I do believe it is 132. Why such an odd number? Any ideas?

    Probably because that is how many rounds fits in this can, then this can fits in a ammo box, then that box fits in a ammo crate.
