You should be able to cook up some plinking stuff with bullets intended for either the 7.62x39 or 7.62x54R.

ETA: For instance: here.

If you like the 303 rifle, I have one left if the fever has hit you. Look on Bolt action listing.

If you buy a generic .30cal neck siizing die you can do almost any 30-31 cal cartridge. Good Shooting........

Hmmm, I have a RCBS .308 win neck die. Perhaps I'll try that.

+1 on the Prvi Partizan .303. I've bought a couple hundred rounds of it from AimSurplus over the past year or so, mostly to make it once-fired brass for reloading, since the only .303 brass available at the time was more than the PP factory loaded ammo. I was delightfully surprised that the PP .303 was accurate, fairly clean and good quality brass. Not a single problem with it. I liked it.
