Default I am looking for

bullets at .311 and near 200 grains. Jackets bullets that are fmj or open tip or soft point. I see many 180 grain bullets, but i need 200 grain plus. I really have looked almost every where. Thank you in advance.

Cheesehead: I think Woodleigh makes a 205 gn .311 bullet for the 303 Brit.

A company named "Hawk" also makes .311 bullets over 200gr, and in two different profiles. Here's a link to their site. Just click on "Bullet Selection".

I never figured out why the ammo makers discontinued the 215 grain loading in the .303. Back in the 60's that was the standard commercial loading for it. Remington, C.I.L., and probably others loaded that weight. In fact I don't even remember any other weight available back then!
