I convinced my noguns teaboo roomate into buying an old enfield.


Unfortunately, it keyholed 40 shots in a row of Sellior & Belliot (sp?) ammo.

The rifiling is still clean, what else could cause this difficulty?

What kind of Enfield and what kind of ammo did you shoot through it?

Post pics of bore and crown?

If it still has some kind of rifling left in it, you might have to cast lead with an oversized mold and get a bullet sizer 0.002" over your bore slug. If you can't into molten lead at home, you could buy bullets from a commercial boolit maker at the size you need.

Before all that, try ammo with flat-based bullets. I think the S&B stuff you shot might be boat-tail, but you'd have to pull one to be sure from what I can recall of the box info.

The only thing I can think of other than a fucked bore/crown that'd do that is if the bullets were somehow undersized, which I wouldn't expect in .303 Brit.

It's not rechambered in something else is it? .308? I'm not too familiar with 303 brit, is it possible to stuff it into another, more popular chamber?

.303 Brit is the larger bore compared to .308 Win, as .308 Win measures groove and .303 Brit measures land. .308 Win uses .308" diameter bullets while .303 Brit uses .311" to 312" diameter bullets (like Russian 7.62x54R and 7.62x39). Calibers like .300 Win Mag and such measure land, so they have .308" diameter diameter bullets.

Caliber nomenclature is absolutely all over the place.

tl;dr unless the Enfield has been bored out to a larger caliber than .303 Brit, rebarreled, or whatever, the rechambering would either result in a surprise fireforming of the regular .303 Brit brass or it not chambering .303 Brit ammo in the first place, but wouldn't be the cause of the keyholing.

It was a No4M1

I'll get him to take some

The Rifiling looks really good.

I don't think the landlord would be thrilled with that. We are also in urban CA, so it tends to be a bit of a drive to get any decent firearms stuff.

Ammo would be the first thing to check by trying other brands/loads. Maybe S&B derped and used .308 bullets, it would be an easy mistake that would be hard to notice from a manufacturing point of view.

Kinda of reminds me. I don't know if any of you remember but years ago I was setting out to make a .45 Enfield out of one of those Ishapore .410 but ended up giving away the rifle to Lei, for reasons.

Fast forward to earlier this year and I finally got to build one on a butchered Golden State Arms Enfield. I've been busy fulfilling my dream gun list lately.

Pic is the Enfield as I bought it from a pawn shop

And this is the finished conversion. I went a different route then I originally intended, but I'm happy with the results.

Got the barrel threaded in hopes of one of the HPA bills passes. I think I want to put a YHM Maxim .45 on it.

My niggah...

What do you think our odds on that is? I've also been tempted to turn a shot-to-shit milsurp into a pistol caliber suppressed rifle, but the paperwork for NFA after the efile era is too much hassle, and I've been holding out for suppressor deregulation, both so I can do this project, and so I can make a suomi SBR with integral supressor, just because the way the barrel shroud attaches really screams easy integral SBR to me. Also, hoping that it would speed the fuck out of SBR/SBS forms, if filing a form 1 took only 4 months to clear instead of nearly 2 years, I'd be more okay to jump through the hoops.
