While looking at ammunition in the main isle, a guy looking over my way asked if there was any 303 Brit by me. I said yes, at $36.00 a box for Federal blue box 150 grainers. From there on it was an hour worth of conversation. His name was Scott. Great guy!

I love these old guns!

Check out PPU its about 1/2 that & nice ammo.

That's what I'm shooting. 180 grainers. Hits steel like a hammer! LOL

I'm an SG Ammo guy!

I'm sending payment tomorrow BTW. Sorry for the delay!
