View Full Version : Value of berdan 303 Brit & 7.62 NATO?
Dan in NY
Any value on these? I have a good sized ziplock with 47 rds. of once fired 303 Brit brass from my last range trip. The headstamp is FNB-81. (Portuguese?) Are these scrap, or do guys reload these?...also have about 100 pcs. 308 Win/7.62 NATO Berdan, once fired as well. Both are bright & shiny.
Just wondering if they're worth anything .
IMHO just scrap. I don't know anybody that attempts to reload berdan primed stuff. I have a 1/2 of a five gallon bucket of berdan primed 8mm. It's corrosive primed by the way.

OK...to the scrap yard it goes..
I reload such. If the .303 are like the 1950's FN ammo I have, they should have .217" Berdan primer pockets. The primers are available. The .308 can be more problematic, as the crimp & sealant on some of it makes it impossible to get the spent primer out.
