I bought this Wolf 303 British 174 gr ammo to shoot in my Enfield No. 1 Mk 3*. I shot five rounds and got a terrible 6" group at 25 yards. When I walked up to the target I saw that 4 out of 5 of the shots had keyholed -- the bullets went through the paper sideways. Also, case extraction was a bit sticky. I then shot some Prvi Partisan 174 gr ammo in this rifle, which shot well and extracted easily. When I got home I pulled a bullet from the Wolf ammo and miked it at .310, but it is only that full .310 diameter in a very small portion of the bullet. Most 303 ammo is .311 or .312. I concluded that this Wolf ammo was undersized in my rifle and not catching the rifling. I think that may the reason extraction was sticky -- the case mouth was expanding and sticking in the chamber? Bottom line: This Wolf ammo may work in your 303 but it sure didn't work in mine. I'm using Prvi from now on.
