    I was out with my buddy Stan hunting Illinois River Road and Chrome Ridge today.
    This 2 year old 3 pointer Blacktail was shot on Chrome Ridge at 12:10.

    That rifle is a 1942 Lee Enfield #4 Mk1* British .303 made at the Longbranch Armory in Canada.
    My landlord 30 years ago was taking it to the dumps when I got it. It was muddy, rusty, missing the bolt and had a rotten stock.
    Now it has an ATI stock, Bushnell Banner 3-9x40, Allen sling and bullet holder.
    The bullet is a .312 150Gn Hornady Triple Lock with 45.5Gn of Ramtec Big Game powder.
    It shoots like a .308.

    From what I understand the Lee Enfield and the Winchester 94 have taken more deer, elk and moose in North America than all other rifles combined.

    It's my favorite rifle. I trust it completly.
    If I can love a gun, that is it.:love:I'd never sell it.

    Nice job, in my opinion, by the looks of the weather in the pic, a warm sunny day is one of the hardest days to find and shoot a buck

    We for sure played hide and seek.
    It was a cold morning and warm afternoon with clear skies. I worked up a good sweat dragging, gutting and skinning it.

    Nice work on that buck! That will eat well and keep your motor running for next time.

    It's a modified ATI #4-MK1 mount. But my #4 MK1* Enfield didn't have the right holes and tabs for it.

    I first drilled and tapped an extra screw hole in the front part of the mount to give it more grip. Then I cut some aluminum to fit and drilled and tapped some holes into the receiver and mount and screwed it together. The stainless hex screws came from the local Ace Hardware. A little blue loctite finished it off.

    It's solid, so far I have over 150 rds through it.
