    303-25 ammo

    hey everyone- I managed to acquire recently a P14 based (BSA model E) 303-25 as a sibling to my other one.
    It will probably one day turn into something else but I would at least like to have a shot out of it in the meantime.
    The PO was very honest in its inability to shoot, and I have a few things to try to at least prove the point.
    Anyone local (just coz its easier) in the CHCH area that loads for these that I could buy off them or even help with reloading some up? Only a packet or so to try it out.
    I have to do a couple of things first to it before I need the ammo so no rush) just testing the waters.
    Who knows-if I get it to shoot it may stay that way but it is a nice big action for something with way more grunt.

    Cant help with the 303 25 but 300 winmag is a good rebarrel option, bolt heads already the right size.

    Tried gunworks. Talked to Amanda about it. Dont have any and with Robbie sadly departed not likely to have it again. Understandable really.
    Anyone with ideas?
