    So if we've fitted a replacement bolt to a used receiver; and got reasonable contact on both lug's and head space is good.
    Would you recheck the contact area after firing ? and if so; how many rounds would you recommend to ensure that it's settled in properly.

    I spent a pleasant couple of hours with whiteout and a couple of cans of beer in my wee room checking through a number of my No.1 Mk3s and all were good to go to a greater or lesser extent. Oddly my most accurate No.1 had the biggest difference between lug contact from one pressure point and the other.

    Life is still good generally Muffet. It's always busy for me at work. My Enfield collection is slowly increasing. Picked up a very nice 1918 SSA made peddled scheme MkIII* that was made into a .22 trainer. Has a one piece PH barrel. Lovely patina on the original woodwork. Got my 8 year old shooting it a few weeks ago. Trigger a bit heavy for her; but she's already calling it her rifle!

    I posted some photos of it in the .22 section

    Last time I assembled one I fit the bolt like this, it's a DP barrel in the vise, machine blued the lugs, checked contact, rigged an old spring to both sides of a case and the turned a 452 xtp around to the bolt, greased the case head and then hand turned the body on to the old stub until it was tension-ed just right, lapped then checked until the pattern evened out.

    Then it was assemble all the hard and wood parts with a surplus barrel following the articles and related posts, check re-check everything and then re-read the articles until I finally got it all together just so or a facsimile thereof.

    I started by pushing the bolt all the way forward- right shut and then just bumping it forward and back to get an initial pattern. No lifting, used a small stone like what was described earlier on the right lug to move things along a touch then just worked it out. There's a sweet spot there that needs maintained or so it seems right before the bolt is pushed all the way down. Tried to keep everything straight as I could, too much fun with these rifles. Want to get another beater/parts gun to work on.

    Muffet 2008,is exactly correct about fitting new bolts,however I have question to ask him[been a worry for several years], why do some of my cases bend during the reloading process,they are straight before. Is this a problem of more metal [brass],on one side of the case??. Stuart.

    Muffet, Is exactly correct, we do not have the luxury of a base workshop!!. Sorry PL.

    Not known, but could hazard a guess that the case is sitting fractionally out of line, noticed with Super Simplex presses where you are neck sizing only.
    Another possibility is the neck sizer is dragging the neck if too tight, dry or excess metal in this area.
    Have had the odd case distort in the shoulder/neck when this occurs.
    Gotta say When it comes to reloading, I just do it and outside the odd stuffed case, don't have much trouble.
