Here is a classic old round, the 303 British. Whenever I hear that, I almost immediately think of the Lee-Enfield yet I realize I now know very little about the cartridge. After googling the name I see it comes up and was a real "classic" and I begin to think about my oldest brothers military surplus rifle he purchased for about 60.00 us dollars at a gun shop. I took it on a hunt once, but never had to shoot at anything, but it was at that time alot of fun to take out and shoot.
According to the information the measurements are taken from "land to land" as opposed "grove to grove" and I really don't know what it means except it may elude to a metric system some of us refuse to accept.
But as I read some of the information on line I took note of the many different configurations that this was chambered too; the P14, a really cool looking battlefield rifle used by the British during WW1, and the MK1 and MK111's, but the list goes on and on, and to my surprise even a machine gun used during the war. What are some of your thoughts on this Old Classic / 303 British?
