I am looking for and wondering if you can get a barrel for a #4 Enfield in .308? I have the .303 now and it is okay but the barrel is getting a bit worn so I would like to replace it with a .308 one. Can it be done and what all would I have to do to do it? Please help I am just starting to do my own work so I need all I can get.

While the British made later versions of the No.4 action for .308, it is not recommended to convert a .303 to .308. Different leagues as for as pressure is concerned.

All British bolt pieces, especially the bolt head, that are proofed for .308 have special proof marking.

Thanks for that I will just put a new 303 barrel in then when I do it.
