I recently picked some .303 up at a gunshow and was wondering if you guys could let me know what I have. I wanna know if I should shoot it or keep it? Very clean looking and has a cupro nickel jacket.

I have a 100 rounds of the POF stuff so I've been using that. My raggedy No5 seems to like the POF stuff a lot.

Oh neat, so I have a box of fire starters. Should I shoot em or hang onto em?

Shot a few when the area is wet, like after a rainstorm. They may not even light after all this time.

What's the worst that could happen? Just a small grassfire!Confused

yup - let it rain first , couple yahoos set fire to our range during the dry season with some older tracers , they lit but didn't burn like you would expect - kinda a smolder that worked on the the dead dry stuff when they weren't looking , 

fire department wasnt real impressed one of them was a volunteer fireman from another town ,
