Only have 2. 1944 Fazakerley No4 Mk1 and a 1935 Ishapore No1 Mk3 on it's way. .303 British is gonna be the first caliber I reload, if I can get my hands on some dies. Great round, great rifles, packed with history.

Sorry about the .308 post, I was told and then read up that one does not use .308 in them.

I heard people use. 308 in them might depend on age

.308 is hotter and may have small case differences I don't remember that part. Only supposed to use 7.62 in the Ishy. I think they were built in the 60s in India but will have to look it up again.

Ok, guess it was 63 to 75. and here is the cartridge info.

The Enfield is one of my favorite mil-surps, I've unfortunately had to pass on several just because I want some variety in my collection.

As of now just one for me, a No.4 Mk.1

Where'd you get the bayonet? I can't find P07 bayonets for under $75+shipping.
