I love my military rifles. I get great accuracy from my Swiss 7.5 rifles, Swede 6.5 rifles, Springfield 03 & A3 rifles and many others. But try as I may, I do not get good results from my 303 caliber rifles. I have a nice Enfield No4 Mk1 and Enfield P14. I have been reloading for 30+ years so I'm not a novice. I've tried every conceivable load you can think of. I have used .311 dia bullets and 3.12 dia, which seem to give better results. My issue is that my best groups at 100 yards are over 2.5 inches. The norm is closer to 3 inches. With all my other rifles my run of the mill groups are an inch or less. My question to everyone, is there such a thing as a target grade 303 rifle? Does anyone own a 303 caliber rifle that has accuracy bragging rights?
