    I thought it was loaded with improved powder and staked primer for the synchronized Browning 30 cal machine guns example: P-35, P-36 and P-40B

    An early Winchester Repeating Arms .303 Ball with a 4 point staked primer for the Browning M.G's in aircraft for those that may not know why they were staked it was to stop the primer backing out or possibly falling out after firing causing a jam in the gun.
