Sierra Spitzer 303 Calibre Bullets 311 DIA 180gr Projectiles Overview
Sierra Spitzer 303 Calibre Bullets 311 DIA 180gr Projectiles;
These bullets utilize the nominal 30 calibre dimensions common to the martial arms of several foreign entities.
Most of these have found their way to the United States
as either war trophies or were imported as military surplus in recent years.
These include the British Lee-Enfields, the late-war Japanese Arisakas, the Russian Moisin-Nagants,
SKS and also AK-47s and their various clones from former Soviet bloc countries.
The cartridges associated with these weapons are the 303 British,
the 7.7mm Arisaka, the 7.62x54R and, of course, the ubiquitous 7.62x39mm.
Most of these guns use a .311″ diameter projectile but it is prudent to slug the bore if any doubt exists.
Given the wartime production conditions and occasionally
questionable pedigrees of some of these rifles, this procedure is a worthwhile investment.
Many of these rifles are capable of delivering decent accuracy and are powerful enough to serve for use on big game.
