    Enfield No.4 accuracy

    Guys, I put another video together on my Enflied No.4 faux T... One of the things that I was trying to touch up on was the milsurp rifle+ milsurp ammo combo and how it doesn't' usually yield subMOA results.. despite how some guys out there seem to tell me otherwise.

    Thoughts?

    Interesting video. I agree with your thoughts on this and your findings bear that out. It does seem that going from milsurp ammo to hand loads leaves out
    commercial ammo, some of which might preform pretty good. Of course there is a cost to consider in buying and testing commercial ammo - some
    of the high end stuff is expensive. I have the H&H Enfield sniper with correct scope, but never have fired it
    Occam's razor, the simplest explanation will be the most plausible

    Nice video! I rarely shoot anything but reloads in any centerfire rifle. Have you tried any of the Hornady .312" bullets in your rifle? The matchkings I believe are .311". When we used to shoot the DCM matches (used to be a requirement to order a rifle) we would use the Hornadys. I had a #4MKI which I still regret selling and my buddy still has his #4MKII. I'm down to a #5 now.

    I used the 174gr .312 in my M91/30 with very good results.
