Why not just buy Woodleigh Hydro’s from Midway? They are expensive, but probably cheaper than setting up a machine shop. Not sure on what these solids would be appropriate to use. The .303 is a pretty good deer / PG load, but likely to be frowned upon most places for braining elephants.
It's a fun thing , man !
In all seriousness , you're right :)

Hart Custom rifles would take such a job.
When l visited India , l saw that the locally made IOF ( Indian Ordinance Factories ) .315 bore sporting rifles were built on a Lee Enfield action with 5 shot detachable Magazines. Shitty quality gun with even shittier quality ammo. The people there have to make do with this trash because Imported arms have been banned in the country since 1986
BUT
It does give one ideas. You could EASILY convert the gun to .315 Mannlicher ( 8mm) .
Of course , .303 British is a really trad cartridge. If you could get your hands on some Brass bar stock and machine some 215 grain Monometal meplat solids to handload , l am sure you would have one hell of a gun :)
Anyone you know in particular I should ask for when I call at hart?

No need to go to the trouble of machining your own. Why reinvent the wheel, Woodleigh in Australia already make it for the 303 and a lot of other calibers.
It's called the Woodleigh hydrostatic stabilized bullet. You will find it on their website.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
