View Full Version : aaaawho Needs .303 Brit Brass?

Well, I see Cheaper Than Dirt has Greek Surplus .303 Brit 174 grasin fully loaded cartridges again. I got some the last time they did, and iit shot fine, and is boxer primed so you can reload them easily. Cheaper Than Dirt rarely is, and if they are, they usally rape you on shipping, but these are just too good to pass by. This definitely is way better than that Pakistani click bang stuff that was going around and was not reloadable. If I wouldn't have bought 440 last time, I would have got some.. But I only have two Lee Enfields to feed so I really did not need more. But if you can use them.....

Just a heads up I ordered the 448 box and none of it was HXP. All mine was Radway Green ammo with a little South African mixed in.

If you order it and don't need the HXP Brass, or get HXP and you don't reload let me know please. I would like to set up a trade of my 447 Radway Green (plus cash or a little more new ammo) for your 450 HXP. I'll even pay your shipping.

I purchased these because I wanted the brass. Turns out I won't get to use mine :mad:

Aw fudfe, I didn't see that it was never identified. I assumed since I saw the 440 pack it was the HXP again. I never even noticed a 480 pack. Is this stuff even boxer primed? If not I would like this entire post taken gown and will request it so.

Some of the brass you get is reloadable. From what I am seeing the 448 pack is going to be Radway Green 99.99% of the time. The 450 pack is going to be a toss up, and the 480 is going to be majority HXP.

Trying to find someone to buy some of the RG ammo now so I can re-order before it's all gone.

And then I assume the Radway is Berdan primed?

Sorry for the long response, yes Radway is Berden primed. Traded 5 boxes of my RG for $60 and 112 Remington head stamp reloadable brass this week. Have another guy who's going to give me $100 for 5 more boxes. That will exhaust the supply from that order. Ordered a different product number this week to see if I can get HXP. 450 rounds on stripper clips, hoping to see it come in at HXP.

Funny thing is I have 2 boxes of HXP sealed in 350 round spam cans. I'm not cracking those puppies open though.

Well, all I can say is I bought 440 rounds from CTD and they were sold (And ADVERTIZED!) as HXP and they were boxer primed. I just shot my first batch of them, Stuff was really accurate. My Enfields seemed to like the 174 grain bullets. I haven't reloaded any of them but they shined up quite nicely as I prepped them for reloading. Guess I won't need .303 cases for a long time.

I remember when Wideners was selling surplus 8 pound jugs of Radway R4895 powder for like $45 . I used H4895 recipes and it worked GREAT. Bought one more jug before it ran out. So I trust Radway, just have no use for their Berdan cases.
