    Well the enfield was originally manufactured in the .303 round, but many were later converted to .308.

    I don't know. I looked into picking up a .308 'field for quite a while, but I could never find one locally. I've since moved on...

    If you are into military rifels and want to know more about them, a good book is the Standard Catalog of Military Firearms 4th Edition 2,000 listings,15,000 real-world prices, 1,500 photos.

    Their bolt action is kind of weird in that it cocks on closing. Takes a while to get used to. I had a No. 4 Mk 2. The ten round magazine is kind of cool.
