Hello, everybody! I've been a lurker for quite some time, but now I have become a member of this forum so I can address a question specifically to Ed Harris, the discoverer of “The Load", 13 gr of Red Dot powder in a .30 caliber case (generally).
Anyway, my question is this: I am thinking of trying a load for my .303 British Lee Enfield No4 Mk1 rifle. It's made by Savage, and has a two-groove barrel. I pounded a piece of buckshot into the chamber end of the barrel, and near as I can tell, the throat diameter is .315". My plan is to use neck-sized Prvi Partizan brass with 10-13 gr of Red Dot under a .312” diameter 123 gr plated bullet from Xtreme bullets. Here's a link to the specific bullets:
I'll be using a Lee Loader to build the cartridges. I would like Mr. Harris to give me his opinion on this load, and perhaps expound upon if he so chooses. Of course, any others may feel free to express any questions, comments, concerns or reservations. See ya!
