    I Don't want steel case, I don't have any primers for berdan cases. Looking for some hunting ammo, brass case. Heading to the local gun shop today to see what they have.

    Good luck on hunting ammo at the LGS. For reloading hunting bullets, you can probably use anything suitable for .303 British. They both have about the same bore diameter. Still, best to measure your rifle, and use a reloading manual.

    For practice & plinking, I have some 150 gr. .310" bullets probably pulled from Russian 54R, that I'd sell. I also have one (1) range pickup 7.62x54R fired cartridge case, which you can have, free. :)
