    What did you mean by Lend-Lease, for USSR? If so, I've newer seen the 303 being use by Red Army

    Hi Dimas, Lend-Lease was not just for the USSR. Great Britain and China etc, got millions of $ worth of gear too.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Gosh, I remember as a kid in the 60's this stuff was commonly available as surplus and I shot up a ton of it in my No1Mk3 Lee Enfield. If I recall right, it was Boxer primed too, therfore reloadable. I probably have the empties in storage in the States.
    Certainly collectors item now!

    Thanks for sharing Bill!
