After finishing up the test, I chose the middle load of powder 38.4 troy grains with a 150 grain bullet. The target revealed the groups of each step in the ladder. The rifle worked perfectly, not bad at all for a 100 yr.old piece. And naturally pics.
    Very nice groups, and even more impressive over open sights. And even more so at your age which ain't that different to mine, except that these days I'm struggling to see your paper target, never mind see the bull let alone hit anything near it at 100 yards.

    I've put you on my list of people not to piss off if they're hunting me with a rifle.

    What's the orange thingy hanging out of the chamber? Some sort of range safety issue to show the chamber is empty?

    Morning! Thank you for the kind words, if I squint just right, I can see the sights well enough to shoot like that. The target is for 200 yds, so i'm cheating a bit, the Bull is the size of a serving platter. I was surprised (though I shouldn't be) that it shoots so well. British Battle rifles are very popular here in Yankland, there being nearly no end to the Boards, and web pages devoted to them. My particular rifle may have come from your Country, it was put to Factory through repair by Lithgow / Slazenger at one point. Anyway, it's been around in its 100 yrs. Someday, I will visit your country, if I come hunting you, it'll be with a Bottle of Spirits.

    The orange thing is a chamber flag, as you said, to insure safe unloaded conditions on the line. This range requires them, but many only ask for an open action, and the magazine to be removed. They are not as strict as a military range, but run along the same lines.

    We certainly made lots of them from before WWI to well after WWII. http://www.lithgowsafmuseum.org.au/history.html , but that was a long time ago before we exported our manufacturing and associated jobs to China etc.

    And, bizarre as this will seem to people nowadays, when I was a kid in the 1950s -1960s it was common to see army cadets from various schools carrying the re-bored .22 version to and from school in their army cadet uniforms on public transport. Do it now and there'd be a state wide terrorist alert!

    I'd be considerably less alarmed if you inserted "with" after "hunting".

    As for hunting me with a bottle of spirits, you'll fail. I'm a beer man. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH3GH7Pn_eA (Carlton Draught is a pretty ordinary beer, but it has a good ad.)

    HA! That's a good-un' I wouldn't insult yours, or Australia's palate with any of our domestic commercial Beers, though some of the local Micro-Brews are very good. Sadly, in the U.S. they know only about Fosters, and that just from the commercials. https://youtu.be/f3RYHKWXIwI As for Spirits, they probably wouldn't let me in the Country if I had a Jug of English Mountain's finest Poitin..

    Finished making Traditional (sort of) ammunition for my Enfield Martini-Henry Mk.IV.
    First, form the cases from brass shot gun shells. then get all the bits together, then weigh out 75 grains of FFG Black Powder (the more "F"'s the finer the powder) Funnel it into the case, and to off with some cotton wool to hold it in place (it's a large case) top that with a glazed card stock disk, (I stamp these out of milk cartons) Normally, here is where the wax cookie goes in for a bullet lube, but my Bullets are ready lubed, so it's not needed. Bullet is placed,Traditional bullets are paper patched, paper is rolled onto the bullet the base being folded over this was normal in those days, and was helpful in keeping the bore cleaned out a bit from the Black powder residue) and seated to proper depth in the press, then on the finished pile it goes. I did one with the paper just to show. (It's more work than it sounds though..) I will have some pics of it all at the range once the weather is more congenial.

    I did manage to get to the local range, and fired the old Martini-Henry. Some others there were interested in shooting it as well, so no real idea who made which holes in the paper, but it did well enough. distance 100 yds.
