Is your babies name Camilla? lol Ok bad joke...

Anyway, what rifle do you own that is chambered in 303? An enfield perhaps? Enfields were and are still nice guns, haven't hunted with one though.

I'd like to shoot a lewis gun some day too.

I haven't hunted with my old lee enfields in years but they are up to the task. Most of my enfields are collector quality so I don't take them hunting but still shoot some of them. I have one sporterized lee that I would hunt with. It is very accurate for a WWII rifle.(1.25-1.5MOA with iron sights)
