HB, the pakistani ammo is widely known among the C&R folk to be some of the crappiest .303 brit out there. Case neck splits, irregular powder charges, flintlock style hangfires and outright duds are the major problems with this stuff. Oh, yeah, and the bullet weights seem to vary somewhat from one round to the next as well, or so I've read. All this leads to some truly lousy accuracy. People aren't even buying it for componets-the quality is too dodgy.
I got some and it seemed OK, except my 1943 Lithgow No1mkIII, which usually throws about a 1.5 inch group at 100 yards suddenly began throwing shotgun style patterns with it. A change back to my last few remaining Privi-Partisan ammo (now no longer made, dammit) restored the accuracy, so I'd give this crap a pass if I was you.
Thats the major problem with Enfields-cheap guns, no decent priced ammo.

Aim has Hotshot brand $6.99 a box which is not bad, but the best commercial stuff I've shot was PMP brand from South Africa in 20 round boxes at $12 a box.

My local gunshop had 2, 50 boxes of SA surplus and I bought them and that was it about 2 years ago. It is damn fine ammo and looks just like my PMP except the bullets.
