I think that all of the older manuals have hotter loads than the new ones do
@Professor Mawla@Major Khan Sir ,
This is a Hornady advertisement from 1961 ( the time when you were a professional hunter in Nagpur ) .
View attachment 366866
As you can see , Hornady was still using copper clad steel jackets in their full metal jacket bullets until 1961 . Then , they used a cheaper cupronickel jacket from 1962 to 1981 . This explains why both you and Mr . Terry Irwin recorded such excellent performance with the early Hornady full metal jacket bullets . Because both of you saw the early copper clad steel jacketed ones in use .
@I heard of the rimless 303/25 but never seen one, a lot of hard work.bob,
i remember when cyril went from a 303/25 to a 243.
there were not many 243s in oz yet then.
the in benchgun was a sako vixen in 222 except for 300 where they used a 308.
then along came nick, heavily pushing the 270.
my friend had a 303/25 rimless.
stuff was not available, and things were tight after the war.
cheap lee enfields were available.
military 303 fired cases where available for several companies to reload as affordable ammunition.
the working man could hunt.
