303 British Ammo

.303 British ammunition (also known as 7.7x56mmR) was the Commonwealth counterpart to the .30-06 Springfield before both were replaced by the 7.62 NATO cartridge in military use. Notable guns chambered for this caliber include the Lee-Enfield series of rifles as well as the Vickers and Bren machine guns. Due to its excellent accuracy potential, many hunters still use the ".303 Brit" with soft point loads.

A typical .303 British load fires a 150-180 grain soft point bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 2,500-2,770 feet per second. Most major manufacturers still produce ammunition in this caliber for hunting deer and other midsize game.

The .303 makes an excellent range load as well, with affordable FMJ ammunition available from Sellier & Bellot, Prvi Partizan, and Remington UMC, among others. You'll find a good in-stock assortment for sale here at Widener's so take a look below.

    When you want something tried and true, you can't go wrong with the 303 British. Developed in 1889, this amazing cartridge is still being used and has seen service through dozens of conflicts. Highly reliable and incredibly effective, this round is phenomenal for taking down medium and big game, or training at the range with vintage firearms.

    Prvi Partizan has been around since 1928 and makes some of Eastern Europe's best ammo. Based in Serbia, this company puts out inexpensive, high quality ammo in over 400 variations, many of which are vintage or hard to find calibers.

    These brass cased, boxer primed rounds fire at 2690 feet per second, and deliver expansion, power, and accuracy you need to take down deer sized game. You can expect to see deep penetration and controlled expansion from the 150 grain soft point projectile.

    Pick up a few of these 20-round boxes of .303 British ammunition by Prvi Partizan to enjoy the long range target potential of Enfield and other rifles chambered in this classic (if sometimes difficult to find) caliber.

    Each round in this box fires a 174 grain full metal jacket bullet that delivers nice, predictable trajectories. The heavy weight of the bullet provides additional resistance to crosswinds, though it does come at a slight cost in muzzle velocity.

    Prvi Partizan ammunition is loaded in Uzice, Serbia using non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.

    Whether you're breathing life back into a classic Lee Enfield or putting a hunting rifle through its paces, this .303 British ammo from Remington's UMC (Union Metallic Cartridge) series is a solid choice. UMC loads are primarily designed for target shooting and use economical but accurate non-expanding projectiles.

    Each cartridge in this box of 20 fires a 174 grain metal case (Remington's term for full metal jacket) bullet at a muzzle velocity of 2,475 feet per second. This ammunition produces the excellent long range accuracy that the .303 Brit is known for while delivering realistic levels of felt recoil.

    Remington ammo is made in Lonoke, Arkansas using non corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass. In business since the early 19th century, Remington is one of the few companies in the US still manufacturing both arms and ammunition. The UMC brand traces its roots back to the Civil War and was one of the first to offer cased cartridges.
