I have heard negative things about POF ammo. My local dealer has some 65 dated POF 303 in crates. Is this worth getting or should I avoid it?

If you reload, compare the price of that POF to the price of .311 bullets. Might be worth getting for the tips.

I tried out a couple of packets a few years ago, and every round I shot was a hangfire - at the very least, I guess it's consistent!

Unfortunately, this is almost the only surplus .303 that we can get in bulk in NZ. Being a Commonwealth country that made the stuff this is truly disappointing. I remember when we could get NZ made CAC 1959 ammo for about 30 cents a round....

On a good note Ammotogo has droped the price on the POF 303 20 Bucks.

The price should be $20 per case the bullets arent even very good for reloading. There not round and need to be resized before reloading.
And the bullet wt is back and forth up to 3 or 4 grains.

I traded for some on our WTS boards and got a bunch for cheap. I've shot it and it isn't bad. No hangfires so far :eek:

I've read that too, but actaully it doesn't make sense. If the case is sealed then the integrity of the powder should be the same no matter what the outside temperature, shouldn't it? So to heat up the case in the sun, means there is some humidity inside and it will dry out somewhat? That makes no sense :confused:

Maybe the primer gets a little boost from the rise in temps?
