    60 Bucks for a packet of 303!!!!So glad I reload.
    Befriend someone close by who has reloading gear, buy some dies if he hasn't already got them and you will do a lot lot better than that.

    Jeez seems a bit steep I can get 308 for less than that. Problem is groups go from touching to 100m to 1.5inch and worse

    As the supply of military surplus .303 ammo has dried up, it's becoming a bit of a "specialty calibre" ie. expensive.

    Have you tried Highland or Partizan/PPU made in Serbia, about $40 a box. 150 or 180 grain softpoints.
    Farmlands or PGG Wrightsons often have it in stock.

    From Wellington, only looking for some cheap Ammo to have a play with and hopefully bag a fellow deer with open sights. The rifle is a old 1913 or something like that ex war. So don't need ammo worth more then the rifle
