The only reason that they arent more addictive is the prohibitive costs of ammunition.
Reload your 303 brings that down...try getting into a krag...there is a n ammo nightmare 18$ for 303...40$ for krag

The Enfield are considered by many to be the finest combat bolt action rifle ever. I know if I had to carry a bolt action in combat it would be a No4 MkII. That said my hands down favorite Enfield is the No5 Mk1 (Jungle Carbine). The handy carbine is one of the coolest Enfields ever designed and they're a lot of fun to shoot. They are kickers and not the most accurate but the size is perfect.

The Jungle Carbines make for a very good pig rifle with the 10 shot mag.
Here's a pic of my Mk3 No.1 SMLE before it was restored and after.
It'll put the Sierra Pro Hunter 180gn pills into a 2" group at 100yds if I'm doing my bit.
