    Tips on loading 303 for a Lee enfield No.4

    Unless you are shooting over 600 yards I'd consider going down the cast boolit route. Just as accurate and a lot cheaper.

    Advice for an alternative approach to .357 underlever?

    No Just range scrap (quite hard actually) mixed 50% with sheet lead. Trying to get a hardness around 12 Brinell Lubed with a SOFT lube and sized to .358"

    Advice for an alternative approach to .357 underlever?

    Au contraire, I use 3,2gr Zero (same burning rate as Viht 310) behind a 148gr boolit. This will group easily in the bull at 20 yards. My suggestion is that the boolits you are using are much too hard.

    Scope choices for .22 BR

    I regularly shoot benchrest .22 in the postal leagues. I would say definitely that a Weaver T36 or equivalent Leupold is required. I not be shooting using a bipod either! The recoil spreads the impact too much. Use good ammo, Eley Match or Tenex or RWS R50 if you want to get good results.

    That's a heavy load. I'd not go over 18gr. Anyway, you seem to have a load you are happy with.

    Weaver T10 and T6 Scopes

    As a user of a T36 all I can say is that the quality of these scopes is superb. They command a good price in the USA but less so here as they are not the latest 'gizmo' with all the bells and whistles T6 and T10 are less desirable due to their lower magnification although the T10 might suit the UKBR22 Sporter class where 12x power is the limit I would have thought a T6 would suit many .22 postal league shooters but as stated above they might go for the latest gizmo
  11. Brand new These were originally loaded rounds that I have disassembled and as such will need neck sizing. £25 posted
  12. Once fired Decapped and tumbled in pins I found some in the man cave that are surplus to my requirements. The offer is 120 cases shipped for £30 - two available
