The .303 British rifle round is the type of ammunition used only in the Lee-Enfield magazine and the Lee-Enfield rifle.

HistoryEdit

The .303 British round was developed in 1889 for the British Army. It was going to be used for the Lee-Metford rifle, originally planned to be the main service weapon for the British Army. Later, the Lee-Enfield bolt-action rifle also used this round[1]. The .303 British round has also been used in the Bren light machine gun, the Lewis machine gun, and the Charlton automatic rifle[2]. In the 1950's, the .303 round was replaced with the new 7.62x51mm NATO round[3]. The .303 British round is still used with reserve and ceremonial Lee-Enfield rifles[4].

PerformanceEdit

The .303 British round has the highest amount of damage for any rifle round currently in Apocalypse Rising . However, this comes at the cost of an extremely high amount of noise created when it fires. The pinpoint accuracy of the Lee-Enfield at extreme ranges, along with decent sights for the weapon during aimed shooting and the extremely high damage this type of ammunition deals, makes this round one of the best types of ammunition currently in the game that can be used for sniping and long range combat, though a big disadvantage is the that the rifle is bolt-action operated.

NotesEdit

  • The .303 British round is only used in the Lee-Enfield rifle.
