    The black band indicates a case that has had the original print cancelled and which was loaded as a 28 bore shotgun cartridge, usually with No.5, No.6 or No.7 shot, and sold in a plain box with a yellow label that read “GAUGE 28 SMOKELESS 25 DEEP SHELL QUALITY CARTRIDGES EMERGENCY ISSUE WITH SUPERFICIAL IMPERFECTIONS SHOT 5”
    Wanted: Baton/Irritant rounds (inert) and associated items, .700 NE (inert) and boxes (empty), .32-40 cartridge boxes (empty), WW2 British shotgun cartridge boxes (empty), Greener Police Gun cartridge boxes (empty). Message me if you have any of these items for sale/trade.

    Thanks but I forgot to mention it was a shotshell. I included it to show the original red print MkII case. I have a black print MkII cancelled in size 7 shot too.

    On receiving my round I found it had remains of cartridge in tail




    Cap may not be original though (not marked with a 'P')??
