Hey folks!  Ran past this on Canadiangunnutz.com.  It's not me selling it, but I'd like to spread the offer to the home team if anyone on here's interested:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vintage WWII Ammunition manufactured in the 40's
303 British
British 174-gr 200 Rds 75.00
I have 6000 Rounds available
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
They're scheduled to be arriving to this guy (private purchaser, not shop) on the January 4th.  He thinks they're either in Spam Cans or Green military ammo cans.
 
member is Xippi, ad under Military Surplus Ammo sale

 If anybody fancies a holiday in Norway there's plenty of ww2 ammo around, Canisters of the stuff still laid  laid on the drop zones some sealed some unsealed and exposed to the elements.  The resistance couldn't shift it  and was left where it landed.

I saw a doco about the raid on the heavy water plant by British and Norwegian commandos a while back.

They recreated the trek by the commandos and it looked like a tough slog, but littered around were the paradrop canisters of that 303 ammo!

My mouth was watering thinking about all the ammo scattered around the hills.

Yeah those Norweigians were really brave guys living on next to nothing in arctic  conditions.  The guys who repeated the treck for the doco were fit lads and they were well knackered .

I watched a similar doco on the raid against the  heavy water plant. but it was more on the finding of barrels of heavy water from the boat that was sunk.similar  search and rescue tactics as the Titanic they found a barrel in the muddy depths and tested the contents.Bingo!  I agree with ya both hatchet-tony,,extraordinary feat of defiance.
