    If you have a 1918 Enfield no1 mk3. And it works with the ammo.
    Change the sight ramp with the LSA! And see if the issue Is solved.
    Or compare the two rear sights closely to see if there are any damage
    Or loose components.

    Got out to the range again today.

    Tightened everything up and started off at around 25 meters to ensure I would hit paper. With PPU it was shooting about 6 inches low at this distance but was centered for windage. Pushing the sight ramp to about the 300-400 m range caused it to hit dead on. I'm thinking when the slider is all the way to the rear it causes the rear sight to be too low.

    Either way, I then moved to 50 m and was able to consistently blow away some clays in the berm offhand.

    I then did he same thing with wolf and had the same consistency.

    I won't be monkeying with the sights other than being ok that the rear slider just has to be set for a longer distance.

    Thats about it, most of us here leave the sights alone and just use the DOPE method from known ranges shot in comp's and go from there, as even hand loaded ammo will not replicate the ballistic trajectory of the MK VII ball ammo produced for the 303's. Due to the facts cordite sets up a different type of harmonics in the barrels as it is more like a detonation rather than the progressive powders we have today, also our bullets have a better ballistic coefficient suffering less drag. Have fun though I do suggest steer clear of Wolf its just cheap and nasty and does not have a good name, its your rifle though. Thanks for the share.
