Since Borepatch Felt Left Out

In the comments on my last post about what your favorite cartridge says about you, Borepatch said, "What, no .303?"

It wasn't in the article, and I don't want him to feel left out, so here's my own effort just for him.
.303 British -- A cartridge developed so long ago that it had to be adapted for smokeless powder in 1891 and is mostly shot from surplus weapons from the heyday of the British Empire. You may look and act like your 30.06 counterpart, but you secretly long for a tweed hunting coat, if not a pith helmet and jodhpurs. But the real reason you love the cartridge is that feeling you get when you work the bolt on that Enfield. MMMmmm! Silky.

Actually, I have always found it better if Borepatch is left out. The problem is that he keeps ignoring the hint.

You can make .303 British from .30-40 Krag brass. Of course they didn't include Krag in there either.
