Smart,

Australia hasn't used the .303 as our dedicated cal since the early 60's - we turned to the L1A1 SLR in 7.62 during Vietnam right up until the 80's when there was a shift to the F88 AUG in 5.56mm.

There are supposed to be stockpiles of .303 held by the Australian defense forces but they aren't saying openly that there are. These days readily available surplus .303 is pretty non existent but people still roll their own and commercial is readily available. I'll happily roll my own and stick with the 3oh until other factors dictate I can't.

Cheers, Tiki.
