Abstract : The angular distribution of 416 electron-electron scattering events occurring when beams of 300 MeV electrons collide has been measured. The experimental angular distribution was compared with that predicted by the Moller formula with a cut-off on the photon propagator. The best fit occurs for 1/K = about 0.18 Fermi. The value 1/K = O (no breakdown of quantum electrodynamics) is only one standard deviation from the best fit.
