Shot my first deer with a .303. It was a jungle carbine though. Kills from one end cripples on the other. How is the recoil on the new one?
Ok I shot the rifle this weekend and it has a substantial kick. But it was a lot of fun. I only got to fire of about 50 rounds and now my shoulder is a bit sore. the accuracy was decent but Im sure that it is a lot more accurate than I can fire it due to the fact that its the first time I have fired a rifle and my trigger pull is quite horrible. Using only iron sights I was able to place tight groups about 1-3 inches at 100 yard but they were all to the right of the target, again due to my noobish trigger pulls. The cycling of the bolt was very fast, which is the usual characteristic of an enfield. I was able to cycle and fire off a round in 1/2 a second. All in all it is a very fun rifle.
