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.
