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.

    This .303 British blank ammo from Prvi Partizan is a great choice for reenactments, tests, demonstrations, and other situations where the effect, but not the actual projectile, of firing a weapon is desired. They're a great way to bring Enfield rifles to life! These blanks come in boxes of 15.

    While this ammo does not fire a bullet, the crimp at the top does contain some wadding material that, combined with the burning powder ignited by the primer, can cause death or injury at very close range. Treat rifles loaded with these blanks carefully and keep them pointed in a safe direction as you would any other firearm!

    Prvi Partizan is a Serbian company that was founded in the city of Uzice in the 1920s. Today, PPU is an international brand often favored by American shooters due to its low cost. However, PPU ammo isn't "cheap": it uses components that are up to Western standards including non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.

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.
