Certainly went very quickly. Looks like it might have been a bargain.

Congrats. Even with a poor bore you have to be happy with the price.

Looking forward to pics once you get it.

As an aside did lee speeds generally use a long lee barrel profile, a SMLE or something lee speed specific?

.375 2 1/2", or maybe .458 2.1" or .458 2.4" - all good choices. Too, a .358 or .375 on a necked up .303 would also be fun.
Jacketed or cast, 250's through 275gr. RN's or FN's, pigs and/or Sambar - sounds like a good choice.

Once I get it here Ill make up my mind which way ill go with it. A rebore to 375 nitro would be nice. Id like to keep the ribbed barrel.
The owner said its a nice looking rifle.Pretty stoked at getting this one even with a poor bore the price was very good. Cheers Mick

Not to give hope where perhaps none is due, BUT, by any chance do you think that Lancaster has one of their famous oval-bore barrels or a Metford and not a shot-out Enfield bore?

If it is, you'll probably have to cast for it (see Accurate Moulds; sorry for the plug, [admins. please remove if inappropriate], no relation, just a many-time satisfied client), as I had to do with all of my old #1 Pattern H.L.S.R.s.(largest 0.318)
