    Posted: April 14 2021 at 12:12pm
Range day was as calm as I could have asked for. When I tested the  scope out the  other day, I was using CB rounds, 440 fps.  Today I used the LR rounds. The original sighting in  was apparently all I needed. At the 50 yards point on the range, every shot on the sighting target hit pretty much dead center. Ten shots on the middle diamond and five shots on the corner smaller diamonds. Not having to deal with a shoulder jolting thump from recoil is what I associate with the extreme accuracy of this brute. That and I believe that the inserted rifle tube inside the original No4 barrel makes this in effect, a heavy target barrel.  My smallest five shot group fits inside a 45 Auto case and the initial ten shot group can be covered with a nickel. I do not have any official NRA targets so I cannot post to the Virtual Match thread. I think I am leaving the scope in place for now on...

Looks good.
I just remembered, answering the other guy's question, The Smith needs chasing up on my ShtLE.22RRF conversion installation! He's had the stuff for months at this point.

I have one of those conversion kits that's never been fitted but its for a No 1 mk III
Looks like fun, I should do something with it.
Ive been shooting a US trainer recently, tons of fun and cheaper to run.
Gets good groups too like that from a rest so its satisfying to shoot/plink with.
Cant beat it for ammo cost-conservation.

its time like this that i remember my dad as well , its one of those things we hope we pass on to our kids and grandkids , 

i will add that my nephews do remember their grandfather [my dad] giving them these opportunities , its why i passed his guns down to them way before i wanted to part with them , they appreciate having what he taught them on , this may well be the last generation to appreciate that , but im trying with my kids and grandkids - hopefully it will get one more hop , 

as kids our first gun was the greatest experience of our lives , it will always be remembered as mine , it is our american heritage and they are trying to steal it every day , if i can instill even a little in my kids [now adults] or my grandkids i will die a happy man , 
ive had my grandson shooting everything from our enfields to my cowboy guns , at least he is getting a little education of our heritage , i just inherited two new ones and im looking forward to having more company at the range - as well as two more that will inherit the items i have left ,

Goosic, that is a great result. 
Seeing the .45 round on the target reminds me of possibly the best (luckiest) shot I ever made!
The challenge was to set off a .45ACP round set in a target at 50 metres.
I set up two targets, one to check the zero (due to a change of ammo) and the second put the .45 round in the centre.
 5 rounds to zero. Much to my amazement, I set off the .45 round first attempt! 
It tore the centre out of the target! I've not tried it again! 
I was using a CZ455 .22 with a Tasco scope

I'm sure you could do that with the Enfield.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

I wish I had my "best target ever" still, but, sadly all I have is a witness.
Big fly 100yds
Ruger 10-22
Nailed him to the "X" ring.
With the factory Iron sights!

I kept that target with the splattered fly taped to it (2 wings, a splat! & an eyeball) till the tape yellowed & the stickum failed, then I put a layer of packing tape over it.
I'm actually amazed I kept my cool when pasting up that target.
Big smile
"Yeah he was driving me crazy buzzing through the black constantly"!

Shamu, you know in French the centre of the target is a "mouche" which is the French word for a fly!
Thumbs Up

This 100 yard shot will always be my cool factor shot. And thank God my teenager and two other witnesses were on hand to verify it...
