    .307 winchester

    Is there anyone here in New Zealand with any .307 winchester ammo? I'm buying if anyone is selling.

    I have a few boxes of factory ammo but am reluctant to use it until I can be sure to get more. I don't reload yet but will probably have to start if I want to use my .307. So to answer your question.... no, I dont currently have any empty brass but I will definitely be saving it as I use the ammo I have.

    What rifle do you own that's chambered in 307win?
    Is it an old Engfield converted or something?
    DO they have the same bolt face as the .303btsh?

    I have a 94 winchester lever action in .307. it is basically a .308 with a rimmed base for use in a lever action. Also a flat nose. I bought the last three boxes of .307 from guns and tackle napier this week.
    I have had ammo on order for over 6 months now. Apparently winchester Australia have had it on back order since october 2014.

    I'm thinking of selling my .307 winchester 94ae lever action. It's in pretty mint condition. I have six boxes of 180g factory ammo to go with. If any one is interested I will post photos and we can discuss $.
