    I would think they would have a sheet with the different sole patterns, numbered, and just work from that. Draw the specific boots from the store and off you go.

    Can't see why reusing propellant and bullets from military cases as you describe is stupid. You know bullet weight, propellant weight, primer and case. Just as you normally load.

    Taking due care...

    303 barrels were made for 174gr flat base spitsers. Try them first. Lighter bullets and boat tail might be too short for the leade. However, I've been wrong before.

    Neck resizing prolongs case life. If you have several same caliber rifles, you should have a load that works best in each one and keep the cases separate?

    The long distance was for volley fire, as in the age of massed formations and muzzleloading, and you expect the enemy to advance in columns and masses. Telescopes weren't in good supply and fitted...

    Such sole patterns are quite common, however, the tracks are easy to follow as the direction of travel isn't from the sole of the shoe/boot, but the indents in the ground. Also, as soon as you see...

    I agree with 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'. Leave that rifle as is, never 'fix' anything, except for judicious cleaning. Don't change the recipe for the cartridges that made the one-hole groups,...

    Quite correct, although war crimes were committed on both sides. The winner determines the result. However, the Allies weren't fighting the Nazi, which was the political party, I believe.

    Block looks 577/450. Converted to 303 like many were. Good shooters.

    Don't be fooled by the thumb hollow, you thumb will certainly hit your cheek when firing; the stock will be too short.
