How many mph does a 303 rifle bullet go?
I'm assuming you're talking about the .303 Savage (there's also a .303 British). It varies by a number of factors, with one of the foremost being barrel length. Generally speaking, you can expect a velocity of around 2,090 ft/s (bullet velocities are usually expressed in ft/s rather than mph), but the actual results could vary greatly, again dependent on a number of factors.

The answer is most certainly "NO". Due to the perpetual stupidity of British military small-arms people, they decided to adopt a different way of describing calibres than ev…eryone else. The "303 British" calibre is in fact a BIGGER calibre than the "308 Winchester" which is the proper family name of the 7.62NATO cartridge used in the British "SLR" which was a variant of the Belgian FN Fusil Automatique Legere. Small dimensions make a huge difference in guns. 303 British bullets are of a nominal diameter 0.3125 inches. 7.62nato (and 308 Winchester) bullets should be 0.308" The difference would cause greatly increased PRESSURE if a 303 bullet was fired in a SLR rifle. Moreover, most "303 British" bullets weighed around 174 grains, whereas the SLR's 7.62 bullet was 144 grains. This extra weight would also increase pressures. As the SLR was not a particularly strong action, damage to the gun and injury to the person shooting it could easily result from any attempt to shoot 303 bullets from a 7.62 rifle. 303 bullet means- the bullet fits the barrel of a rifle, diameter of that barrel being .303 inch. this has no relation with SLR rifle as someone that has used enfield number 4 mk2, an L1A1 SLR and an L42A1 quite a lot I'd like to add my 2 penneth worth here.. the .303 is also a rimmed cartridge wheres the 7.62 is not, so if you did managed to get it to feed the bolt won't be able to fully close because of the thickness of the rim catching on the edge of the chamber, I guess the most likely result would be either the weapon wont fire or if the weapon does fire you would have a breach explosion possibly to the anoyance to anyone on your right, incidently as a side note, a number of old .303 rifles were converted over to 7.62mm and used by the British army for a number of years, designated as L42A1's before being replaced by the L96, maybe this could be the cause for confusion
It depends on several factors. Bullet can travel as slow as a few hundred feet per second up to several thousand feet per second. 1000 feet per second is about 682 MPH.
Bullets from rifles and handguns can travel up to several thousand feet per second, so just as a mere example, a bullet traveling at 2000 FPS is traveling 1467.81 MPH.
No, a 303 is a rimmed cartridge, the 308 is rimless.
If it is chambered for it.
it depends on what size of a bullet you use because some can travel miles
4 hours 20 minutes approx
2441 feet per second when fired from the British SMLE rifle. Velocity will vary when fired from rifles with a longer or shorter barrel.
5 5 x 51 = 255 with a remainder of 48
In excess of 1 mile.
WHICH rifle? There is more than one type made in this caliber.
No. The L1A1 Self Loading rifle in in caliber 7.62 x51 mm (7.62NATO) fires a rimless cartridge with a .308 bullet. The .303Enfield cartridge is a different shape, has a rim, a…nd fires a .311bullet. If you compare the two cartridges, totally different inshape.
