Go for it mate but headspace to 62 thou instead of 64 as rim thickness varies a bit. If you would like to borrow my 25/303 Epps reamer give me a call. My son gets 25 ought six velocities out of his with mild pressure. Load calculations say 47,000 cup.
Remember the No will handle the 7.62 NATO round so you will have fun.

If i formed 303 /25 Epps from 303 brass & reloaded them would that make me a Transloader? . does the Epps feed out of the magazine ? . Thanks for the offer i will talk to Allan Swan about it. What about reloading dies?

Need to modify the mag to a single loader. Once sases are fire formed you could reload with Simplex 25 cal neck die and bullet seater or we could work something out with dies.

BOB please send picture of a 303/25 Epps.

In the No4 I load 51 gns of 2213sc behind a 117grain SST for around 3,000 fps. The 100gn ttsx achieves a comfortable 3,200fps without straining.
My P14 loads are a lot quicker.

With the magazine issue will i probably go with the standard 303/25, no problems with dies case forming ect i am getting too old to reinvent the wheel . i have a 240 Weatherby & a 243 so i do not need this to be a 3000 fps rocket. just some thing like the 250 Savage, easy on barrels , shoulders & ears.

It will be more like the Roberts on the No4 action.

375 H&H and 270 Win. I'd like to say 500 Jeffery but it's kinda like taking the fat girl to the prom.
I'm down with that! We all need a little love.

If this were a 1925 advertisement, the .500 Jeffrey being sold then in their "No. 1 Model" for $355us, would be $5,655.70us if purchased in 2021, according to the online U.S. Inflation Calculator. Interesting.
Any body have plans to build a time machine:D

Hello Bruce, I think you are still in Africa?? I just sent payment to Bulls Eye Taxidermy to have 3 of my animals mounted, it has been years since I have had anything mounted. I hope Ronnie and Jimmy had a good hunt down Kimberly way. Anyway, so nice to have met you Bruce, it was wonderful meeting you and spending time with you in camp. I hope your store closure and building sale go well. Cheers, Andrew Fike

G'day Bob,
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.
Hunt: Alaska, Canada, Mexico and USA: particularly the Western states.
