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.

There are many types of .303 rifles. Perhaps the most famous is the British Lee-Enfield series, beginning with the No. 1 Mk1, ending with the No. 4 MkII. This famous rifle was… the evolution of the bolt action design of James Paris Lee, a British (Scottish-born who later became Canadian) inventor and the famous Royal Small Arms factory in Enfield, England who designed the square-shaped rifling system. The '.303 British' is the most famous calibre used in these rifles and went on to become the most widely sold rifle and calibre in history.
\n \n\n. \n. 303 was the .303 inch diameter bullet that was fired by the Short Magazine Lee Enfield- or SMLE. Standard rifle of the British military from 1907 to the 1960s,… and still in limited use today.
4000 fps +
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.
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
No, a 303 is a rimmed cartridge, the 308 is rimless.

Well, it works quite well, thank you. This is a magazine fed, bolt action rifle. Cartridges are placed in the magazine. When the bolt is operated, a cartridge is pushed from t…he magazine into the chamber, the firing pin spring is compressed, the firing pin held back by the sear, and the bolt locked in the closed position. When the trigger is pulled, the sear releases the firing pin, which is driven forward by the spring, striking the primer of the chambered cartridge. When the primer is crushed by the firing pin, a spurt of flame from the primer passes through the flash holes to the interior of the cartridge, igniting the propellant. This extremely rapid burning propellant generates hot, rapidly expanding gasses, which drive the bullet out of the barrel. The spiral grooves (rifling) cut on the interior of the barrel cause the fired bullet to spin, which keeps the bullet traveling in a direct line.
Depends on model, year, the presence or absence of distinguishing marks or features, whether or not it's been sporterised, whether or not all parts are matching, and overall c…ondition. You could be looking at anywhere from $100 to well over $1000. It's a little difficult to narrow it down without even knowing what type of rifle it was (there were various marques of the SMLE, and the SMLE was not the only British .303 rifle).
7.7x56R, more commonly sold as the .303 British.
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.
Anywhere from one to 100, depending on what exactly the rifle is.
If you mean CARTRIDGES for a .303 Enfield rifle, also known as .303 British, depends on which cartridge, and where you are. In Virginia in the US, civilian hunting ammo may re…tail for $35/ 20 rounds. Careful shopping for surplus ammo may be less.
