Enfields are fun rifles to shoot. Ammo is pretty available especially around hunting season. Cabela's always has .303. I second the private partisan which is inexpensive compared to US hunting ammo. I have a $150 parker Hale sporter that is fun to target shoot and hunt with. Best of luck on your new rifles!

Thanks!
The best part is the smile you get on your face from shooting one.

Headspace is sometimes an issue with the Enfields. Changing the bolt head USED to be an option but the oversize bolt heads are in short supply now. Keep a close eye on the body fo the case just forward of the rim for a bulge. This is a definite sign of headspace problems.

I hope someone starts making aftermarket bolt heads!!!
