Is anyone aware of where there is any surplus .303 for sale ?

I've only really seen the Pakistani stuff... never bought any, but it's reputed to be CRAP. I believe almost all other sources of surplus .303 have dried up.

Yea on a .303 site they were ragging on it , hang fires , duds.....crap . There's no doubt in my mind another "last lot" of a billion rds or so will be discovered sooner or later......

The .303 market is DRY right now.

There were rumors floating around that an importer bought 2 million rounds of Greek or Radway Green, but that hasn't turned up yet.

Right now, commercial is your best and only bet.

There is some coming, but it will be more like the Paki stuff than the SA stuff or Greek stuff. Glad I packed away a couple thousand rounds of both before it vanished.

Both are the best surplus ever made for the Enfield. I have a healthy stash of SA left over, but my Greek is now being reloaded cause I couldn't resist shooting the hell out of it.

I believe Samco Global Arms has some mixed headstamp British 1950's production .303 listed on their site. As to whether it is decent stuff or not I cannot say.

Ridiculous ammo prices have kept me from getting an Enfield for $99, I might as well hold out to find a .308 Ishapore or an FR-8 and willmake up the price difference in ammo/weapon in a year of shooting

The HXP is good brass for reloading also. Very heavy as compared to the others. It works well to fireform loads for Enfields with excessive headspace. Normal brass gets all deformed by these rifles.
