A much more popular round in the United States than some of the Sellier & Bellot Euro-line cartridges, the .303 British is a stout performer for medium and large game, but it also mainly used as a target and fun gun in the USA. The former military cartridge is a favorite production target of the Sellier and Bellot business plan, and it sells many millions of rounds of ammunition in that specific channel each year. This .303 British load is a perfect example of the commitment to sporting versions of military calibers that Sellier & Bellot is very good at producing and marketing. The modern components and reloadable brass is a perk that most ammunition on the market, either does not offer or charges too much for. It’s been a great growth strategy for Sellier & Bellot over the past two decades in America, with the U.S. shooters craving that value add, even if they have never reloaded a single cartridge in their entire shooting career.
This round is a 150 grain soft point suitable for hunting in most jurisdictions, that offers 2654 feet per second velocity and 2341 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle and is considered in the sweet spot for the sporting and field uses of this rifle cartridge.
