Question Is stuff worth it?

I saw this under marketplace/ammo:

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=541146

Two questions:
1) IS this stuff compatible w/303British?
2) Is it worth getting?

Don't know much about this stuff, so any info is most welcome!

i can't see why it wouldnt be
SA was a british holding for a while. 7.7x56r is just the metric designation
303 isnt as easy to come by as it once was. Price seems pretty decent.

Hard to find surplus .303. We found some Indian stuff a month or so ago. It looks just like the South African stuff pictured. No problems shooting it

The SA .303 is some of the better surplus that was common about eight or nine years ago. It works well in my enfields.

UPDATE:
I am buying the Boxed (50 rnds per box)182 Rnds total 1980 date. 303 South African!
Wish I could had bought the 350 rnds stuff but didn't have the funds. With the stuff I all ready have on-hand plus this stuff, I should be set for awhile.
Thanks for all the input - CALGUNS ROCKS!
