Here is a list of some of Peter Laidler's articles. Mr Laidler was an armorer in the Brit Army and he is a wealth of knowledge for Enfields

Possibly scroll down to the article "Fittng Rifle Bolts"

Interesting read.  I had read this before but forgot what he said.  Something he said which I had been wondering about is the need to fit an extra long bolthead indicates the rifle needs to be deactivated.  Something to think about.

On the other hand if one simply wants to minimise the headspace so as to preserve reloadable brass then I suppose that would be acceptable.
