Less common in game fields and ranges now than ever in the past, the modest-pressure .303 British nonetheless remains a phenomenal cartridge for dropping animals, ringing steel targets and punching paper. Consider this: When using the recipe below, the economical, flat-base, Hornady 150-gr. InterLock bullet has a trajectory similar to a 180-gr. projectile from the .30-’06 Sprg. Would anyone question the virtue of that all-American cartridge? I think not. And, Hodgdon’s CFE-223 has an additive that deters copper fouling, which keeps your Brit spiffy. Cheers!
