    Agreed! Just got news that my brass smith is hesitant because of liability. He said I need a munitions shop to make the bullets. Any recommendations? Thanks, Randy

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    Just got some good news. My third round of bulletmakers have said they would take on the job. I am now in need of the Twist Rate for the T-Gewehr. Thanks, Randy.

    If you have the rifle, you can use a rod and brush to determine your twist...

    I would have got one re-barrelled in 50 BMG reason being unlimited supply of brass, barrels, projectiles and load data plus you keep the original barrel so when you do sell it you'll get more $'s for it as a collectable instead of one that's been well used, allot of Boys .55's were re-barreled to 50BMG.

    No question, using the 50 BMG barrel, as some T-Gewehrs have been converted to, is the most economical way to go. I first thought about buying one about 5 years ago and it was setup with both barrels priced at $10K. Yes, the reloading startup costs are daunting:

    1. Dies from CH4D are almost $500 + Shellholder
    2. Cases from RCC are $17/each
    3. I am pricing out the bullets today

    To me, as the ultimate Milsurps Bolt Action Rifle, I got to go as original as possible. You get to a point in life, I am 63, that you start working on the bucket list and this was one of the first on the list some 40 years ago. Thanks, Randy

    Lee will make custom molds for you. But they are crazy busy now. Try lead bullets and down-load the charge. A few years back the Reno Gunshow had 3 (yes, 3!) T guns for sale. Good luck.

    Got some good news on the bullets. Solid copper for $4each which is not too bad as this is very much a labor of love and top of the bucket list. Will be working on the rifle soon. Thanks, Randy

    Thanks Jsne. Got the spec over to the bulletmaker. Randy

    Well, you aren't going to be shooting any 30-shot competition series with that monster, are you?

    "You get to a point in life, I am 63, that you start working on the bucket list and this was one of the first on the list some 40 years ago."

    Yeah, not getting younger, healthier, richer or prettier - time to get things done!

    Eagerly awaiting progress reports!
