Default 303 enfield for long shots

Hi Friend,

I have owned 3- 303 Britishes and they are a great rifle, I always use the 180 grain round nose slugs, and have dropped deer out to 300 yards no problem. The elevator sites lowest setting is 200 meters, so either raise it up, or aim for the ridge pole. If you have a scope you will have to site in for the yardage that you plan on shooting.
