    Speaking of the Ish, you are usually up on stock cartouches. It has an "S up arrow A" stamped on the left side of the butt. Any ideas?

    So took the Enfields out for another run this morning. Started with the Ish. The pop can loads shot better today. Then I found some test loads with the 210g FP boolits made for 300 BO subsonics. Those over 5g of AA #5 were surely subsonic. Pulled out the earplugs and the sounded like sv .22's.

    The Savage also shot better than last time. The pop can loads hung together better. Then I finished up the 170g FP, GC, 45/45/10 boolit test. Left the sight at 550, shot the Shooters World Buffalo Rifle load first, then the two 2400 loads. They kept going higher so I'd say the 2400 pushes them a little faster. Weather was awsome. 65 deg, little wind, and mostly cloudy. Perfect, lol!

    The "S up arrow A" is a South Australia marking if I remember correctly. Lol! Mine has it too.


    Edit: I may be wrong on this. The people over at the Enfield forums are on disagreement about what it might be.


    Edit 2: So, turns out it is India's Government/Military Small Arms marking used after their independence from Brittan in 1947. Learn something new every day. Lol

    So, I finished up Mauser Day this morning. Actually, started yesterday and that was a comedy of errors. Pulling into the park it starts to drizzle. No biggie if it doesn't get any worse. Then I find the big front range bag rest is awol. Not like that hasn't happened before. Start out with .30 Carbine bullet pop can loads, move up to the 165g load, and then on to the Berry 150g mid-range load. It was after the first 5 of those were gone the drizzle turned into rain so packed up. Sucked as that Berry load was off to a good start.

    Started this morning with the Kar98. A 170g LFP pop can load, and a first try with the PPU 139g SP mid-range load. Until I figure out a way to see the sights this probably won't get better. I'm ok with that as it's a really cool rifle. Those PPU slugs printed sideways, almost like they might have come out of an MG42 being hosed lol!

    Finished up with the American Mauser/03A3. Started with a 165g LFP pop can load, and then a mid-range load with Speer 125g TNT's. No complaints here. Mostly round groups. I can see the sights on this so it's easier to shoot.

    Nice! Love the sights on the 03A3. Very easy to shoot with.
