    Some of the old mass produced military rifles can surprise you in the accuracy department if they are fed some vittles they like. Looks like you found the right stuff!

    Nice group, pretty good for a WW1 rifle, the only problem I had with reloading for a Lee Enfield is that the chamber is not very tight and is hard on brass 3 or 4 reloads is best you will get with the same brass. There were lots of different makers of ammo then and none made the same

    Good to see you changed your mind.
    Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.

    if your 303 is numbers matching, keep the miltary stock, that rifle is worth $600 to $800 here

    Makes sense since the bullet of choice for the military is 174 grains. I have the same model only it's an Ishapor. So far I've only shot Wolf premium in it, but it loves the 174 grain FMJ's, as do my
    Arisaka and 09 Argentine. That round nose Hornady should do everything you need it to do!! Those old guns are fun!!

    Nice looking hunter there beartracker. Nice shooting too. The .303 will take down anything walking especially in North America. That would make a sweet Hog rifle.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
