    World at War: 700 Yards Mayhem - British Sniper vs German Sniper - No4 MKI T!

    1944, Allies are pushing against Nazi Germanyicon! Britishicon Snipers often are on the tip of the spear, leading attacks against Germans.
    So how their main Sniper rifle, No.4 MK. I (T) worked? I'm taking on 13 different size targets all the way from 100 to 700 Yards! Let's see what this rifle really can do!
    As a counter sniper I'm going to use German BYF High Turret Sniper, what could go wrong?
    I hope you will enjoy watching this video!

    A great rifle and excellent shooting, well done.
    I have a box of that Winchetser red label ammo; marked for synchronised guns on the box. Incredibly reliable for 80 year old ammo.
    I won't be shooting it though!

    Thank you for watching. And yes, this is some fascinating story about this ammo. So the ammo was designated for RAF, also, it says "for synchronized guns", but then we have "not for use in the airplanes". We discussed this at gunboards and post by Damien was really interesting: "Red label is definitely the right stuff for air service, but why put "NOT FOR USE IN AIRCRAFT" on the cartons? Without wanting to sound too pedantic, there is a mistake in the packaging somewhere along the line. The label in the photo is a new made replacement, so either it is mistaken, or the original Winchester printed carton label is incorrect. I am not doubting the photographic evidence as such, but there is a logical explanation that is probably a good story, if only I knew it."

    The quality of the Winchester ammunition was very inconsistent, (size varations) resulting in jamming and blockages. It is not so difficult to clear a jam in your Enfield but not so easy when the gun is on the wing of your Spitfire.

    Investigations into shot-down aircraft (and the loss of the pilots) showed that their guns were jammed and those had all been using Winchester 'for use in aircraft' ammunition.

    Subsequently all Winchester manufactured 303 was banned from use in aircraft, and only allowed to be used for "ground use" and for some early batches only for "ground practice" use.

    Now you know the 'story'.

    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...
