    303Guy replied to a thread .41 Mag Single Shot in Military Rifles
    Being me I would use a Lee Enfield action. I'm sure it would work as a single shot with no mods at all. It might even feed from the mag. One trick is to use a mag with no innards. Spent cases just drop in - very handy. But then I would probably...

    Cordite is interesting stuff. If one pulls the b*llit and strikes the primer (from a safe distance), it goes off with a bang - just like a blank. A load bang I might add. If the case is not secured I would imagine it would fly back at you with...

    I once shot an African bushpig (tough critters) with a full house 44 mag 245gr Keith hard cast at close range. The boolit passed under the skin over the skull and travelled down through the neck muscle, nicking a vertebrae. Total penetration? No...

    But does the bore leave a fingerprint on a patched boolit? Mine do. The patch wears through in places. So the investigators would need to do is fire an identical patched boolit in my gun at the same velocity and they would have me. All of which...

    Well then, I had better get downstairs and load up some rounds. I have a Longbranch No4 Mk 1* five groove. Actually, I have mint Longbranch two groove. And a Fazakerley (I think) Mk 1 two groove. Yeah, three of the things and I've never taken...

    I want to see what other people are doing too. 'Specially with troublesome guns. Somehow they seem to be more fun, as challenging as they may be. I admit I also enjoy seeing really small groups that some folks are achieving. So post those...

    Something like that sounds good to me. I'd suggest starting out very informal. Just show us the groups stating range and groups size. Load details and gun would be helpful I think, for those of us who would like to compare loads. We could ask...

    I think so. It has such appeal to me. It shoulders beautifully and I can hold it quite steady. The bore had some rust but after cleaning up, the throat matches the unsized neck for paper patching with a tapered boolit I had already made for...

    That mista Ritus fella? Yeah, I met him in my early forties. The good news is - he can be beaten. I got my hands and my knees back! But he's persistent. He's kinda got my elbows in the last year or two. I may not get them back fully this time...

    Aah yes, motorcycles. I rode one (or two) for several years. Gave up as I got older. They can be a bit risky. Just this morning there was a massive traffic hiccup on one of our motorways. Fella at work got past just after it happened and saw...

    How about having an informal cast boolit competition thread? I kinda like the idea of a sub-forum but just a thread will do. Not interested in high tech or who can shoot better but rather in how y'all are doing, what with and how. Keep it...

    Well, I have a few rifles with throats that have worn into a taper that allows for the full support of the exposed section of the boolit in the taper. I'm talking fairly long boolits. One of those rifles shot very well even though the muzzle end...

    I happen to have one or two 303 Lee Enfields. One of them at least shoots lightweight (147gr) plinker loads which are subsonic, very quiet with a suppressor and accurate to boot, like, centre of beer can at 40 - 50 yds from the shoulder. Trouble...

    I am also interested in the neck tension question. I have loaded rounds with zero neck tension and they seemed to shoot Ok. I've done this with jacketed bullets too (forgive me for I have sinned) and I have recorded sub MOA. I need to redo that...

    I have heard of a Lee Enfield (I would think an SMLE since it was from a WWII armourer - my uncle, although he never said it was) that apparently had a pull through cord left in the bore that split the barrel from chamber to muzzle. I think it was...
