    "Small Mark" ammunition was ammunition that failed visual inspection because it had small marks such as scratches or dents on it. As such, it was not issued for front-line military use, and was usually sold off commercially for the civilian market. The NRA at Bisley used to sell it at prices below that of the "Issue" stock. I have shot lots of it over the years, and usually found that it was just as good (accuracy-wise) as the more expensive version. The NRA used to get it from both Kynoch (back when they used to have military contracts), and Radway Green.

    Thank you Roger
    I've had a closer inspection of the rounds in that box after your reply and can see a few slight marks on some of them they are dated 1968 L2A2 I'm sure they will be accurate enough for our twice a year section in defence shoots, its all dated 68,69 and 70
