    This may not be what you are looking for (and I wouldn't blame you a bit if you shied away), but I have 60 rounds of good handloads left over from the pile my father left to me. Here's what they are:

    WW Brass, new, and in the WW white boxes (3) in fine shape.
    180g Sierra .311 Spitzer
    42.5g IMR4895
    Primer: unknown, but Dad loaded CCI's (#200?) almost exclusively for all his Large Rifle loadings.
    Velocity: 2450fps.

    This data from Dad's ballpoint pen markings on each box. Velocity stated is probably from load book printings (Dad never owned a chrono).

    These were done for a Jungle Carbine he had for awhile. Checking my Lyman book, this is .5g below max. Load date is 1980.

    I also have a full box of the same Sierra bullets, and a nice RCBS die set. Will probably never own a SMLE, so would let these go for a fair offer. Again, full understanding if you are hesitant to buy "handloads off the internet". I would be too.

    P.S.: He was a retired Senior Master Sergeant, USAF, too! I am certain the ball point pen he used was a black/chrome one marked "U.S. Government". Somehow he retired with a lifetime supply of 'em.
