.303 British is a stout performer for medium and large game, but it also mainly used as a target and fun gun in NZ.
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 for shooters craving that value add, even if they have never reloaded a single cartridge in their entire shooting career.

British 303 History
During the seven decades that the 303 British spent in Her Majesty’s service, 303 British has been fired on every continent and in countless wars and uprisings.
The reliable feeding and extraction it offers in bolt action rifles and machine guns alike makes it dependable and versatile, and it has been deemed effective for practically everything — although Canadians noted that you had better pack something even bigger when squaring off against a hungry polar bear.
