    What kind of prices does the ball ammo sell for ? I am considering getting a .303 and was wondering.

    Nope, u will find .303 hunting rounds very hard to get, the .303 mostly available will be PPU or S&B and will be FMJ rounds totally not suitable for hunting, these rounds are practice/ target ammunition.

    I know quite a few makers do produce .303 in hunting rounds. Hornady, S+B, Winchester, even PPU i think. Must be no call for it here.

    Did you enfield lads see this, the MOD in the Uk want to scrap 7,000 No.8 .22 training rifles. They are pretty valuable, but they are saying they cannot be sold off. What a pity.
