    I'm not an expert on the Ross, but my understanding is as follows:

    Surpmil, I've never read anything about a Ross rifle factory chambered in .35 Whelen. I'm only aware of the .280 Ross, .303 Brit/Ross, .354 Ross/Eley (experimental), .35 Winchester, and the .370...

    The .303 British and .303 Ross are the same cartridge. The only difference is that .303 Ross chambers and ammunition were kept to target grade standards until WWI.

    I've taken classes in acetylene welding and brazing, and it looks as though the action was held with a vise tightened on the action barrel ring, so that would have acted as a heat sink. There's a...

    I think that the rifle started out as a BSA commercial rifle (it has the BSA trademark on the knox form) that was adopted by the Union of South Africa (broad arrow within a U).

    I see - that'is what causes the neck not to be concentric to the body. Never used one - always just backed off a FL die. If this rifle is chambered for .303 Epps Improved, a custom FL die will be...

    I get an "ouchie" just thinking of a .303 Epps Improved chamber in a No. 5 MK. 1 - that scalloped knox form doesn't improve strength. Fortunately, standard ammunition should actually show less...
