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.

    Whether you're making a Great War movie or simply want to make a lot of noise with your Enfield rifle without actually shooting anything, these .303 British cartridges from Prvi Partizan will get the job done.

    This ammunition features specially crimped extended cases with wadding to retain the powder charge.

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

    This ammo was designed for less-than-lethal use, however, this ammo could still cause serious injury or death under certain uses and scenarios. One such scenario is using it in close proximity to your target. Be sure to handle a shotgun, rifle or pistol that is loaded with less-than-lethal ammunition in the same way you would any other.
