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.

Federal's Power-Shok line helps bring American engineering to old British favorite that spells hell for any medium-size game animal that enters your sight picture. Each .303 British round is built ignited by a clean-burning Boxer primer which is inserted into the base of a brass casing with an accompaniment of water-blocking sealant that helps guarantee reliable function after being humped around in swampy environments. The brass casing is reloadable and can be processed at a home reloading bench for custom loads after being fired. Federal Premium has experience with these components dating back to 1928, allowing them to offer this effective ammunition at an affordable price.
Each round is topped with a 150-grain soft point which is light for the .303 caliber and offers flat-shooting performance with no lack in terminal energy. As the bullet enters a target its soft exposed nose will be smashed, causing massive expansion which tears up internal organs, making the most efficient use of its kinetic energy. A toothed cannelure at the bullet's midsection culls this expansion just enough to ensure proper penetration by mitigating jacket separation. This same feature keeps the bullet properly aligned in its crimp for an accurate zero that you can trust.
