I have some 303 Brit ammo I would like to know if it poses any collector value. I would eventually end up shooting this stuff up but wouldn't if it carried value. I have about 20 loose rounds dated 1943 and then a bandoleer of stripped ammo with 1949 on them, bandoleer dated 1946 I believe. See photos below, any insight would be appreciated

WRA 1943

WRA headstamp is Winchester Repeating Arms, believe it or not. They had contracts to provide .303 during both World Wars.
GB is Greenwood and Batley, Leeds, UK.
Not familiar with the bandolier maker, I'll look it up.
Wouldn't say these are 'collector' rounds. I'd probably keep one or two of the Winchester rounds due to the uniqueness.

I really appreciate the knowledge. Think they will actually fire reliably? Or is it anyones guess
