    Yes, the two stage trigger and believe it or not, it is a good trigger and the second stage does not drift, it just breaks clean.

    Looks like a great open site group to me - and if they had just printed the "bullseye" where it was supposed to be you'd have an outstanding group!
    Are you shooting the factory trigger in that puppy?

    Well, it is different shooting with these old military sights at 100yds but here is my best group and load chain.


    215gr RN Woodliegh, 2101fps, MRP, Rem brass, Remington 9 1/2M primers, three shot group at 100yds



    Pressures were really low and I will be able to easily get to 2200fps which is what I am looking for. Here is a picture of the brass and not flatened primers.



    After this fall and I am through getting my grandson Jordan to hunt with open sights, I am going to scope this rifle, because it shoots good.

    i will watch for your post and think the classic .303 brit is a great old cartridge! i bet there are more than a few still being used throughout alaska & canada.

    good luck with your project.

    Will be going to the range this coming Monday to shoot my Lithgow No. 1 Mark III sporter. I will use this thread to post my load work and shooting results. Here is a picture of the .303 Cartridge with the 215gr Woodleigh.
