    Reloader Supplies and NZ Ammo both have Norma
    100gr SP factory 257 Roberts ammo if that helps.

    @garyp Wonderful thank you. I will PM you. I only have 20 borrowed cases at the moment so whatever you can spare to sell will be great.

    Cheers

    begiggered if I can see the attraction in buying a rifle only to ship it off to be permanently altered before its even been fired...threaded for suppressor I CAN UNDERSTAND....but rechambered or whip off perfectly good barrel and change it...not so much.
    Agree 100%. I have a perfectly good Mk111 303 here, that appears to have had it's barrel hammered down to .25 calibre. I suspect it was done by a wayward Ozzy bastard many years ago. I'll heat the barrel up and fire a proper .303 174 gr round through it yet...should correct it nicely.

    ah but you see the said wayward ozzie barstard HAD A LEGITIMATE REASON to do so..... it was the done thing in OZ to get around laws and use a good action in worthwhile way.... the origonal .312 barrel might also have been poked beyond all hope of redemption..... it could have seen action in trenches and not seen a cleaning patch for months on end,rifling all but corroded away and the ensuring patterns rather than groups would make hitting the side of a large barn even fron within its confines somewhat problimatic....THIS I can understand.... the alteration was needed to make rifle once again function to a level worthy of getting it out of cabinet...now taking perfectly fine rifle that is more than accurate enough and rebarreling for stuff all real world gain seems to be just a waste of hard earned coin to me.
    but each to thier own... your bangstick,your money,your call...far be it for me to tell you how to live your life. life would be boring if we all did things the same way.
