    303 ammo

    This will may end up in the buy/sell section but checking out if its worth it first.
    Ended up buying some 303 ammo back before xmas but having second thoughts. Real liquorice all sorts.
    Think its about 90 rounds. Mostly a few different types of military with 20 odd sporting types of all different breeds.
    What's the market for the military stuff otherwise I shoot it off for shits and giggles for the cases.
    Thoughts?

    Sorry to "put a fly in your ointment", but the chances are that the military, if British or commonwealth, will most likely be berdan primed .............Good luck with reloading that.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    If you have any HXP stamped military (Greek) its non-corrosive and reloadable.

    @swazi I got some of that to try out the ongoing 303 project. whilst I reckon the main issue at the time I tried it was a bedding problem (doing that today finally), I reckon it had some off ones in the mix.
    This is the old school NZ stuff.
    If anyone is interested ie collectors, military shooters etc, I'll consider getting rid of them and use the money for other bits and bob.
    At the time I was 5-/50 about taking them but talked myself into it. would've been different if they were all the same.
    Should've listened to my gut and saved my money.
