25~30 MPH wind from 10:00

You can see the bunker at 325+ yards on the hill. This is a given shot for an Enfield but I have not had this one out in ten years and I don't have the good Sierra bullets any longer so I only got the steel plates half the time.

Another person green (jungle green) with envy. I had one. I don't now. The price of every new gun is one old gun. Anyhow, what all came with your sniper? Box? Box for the scope? Does the scope match the rifle (I think the scope serial number is marked somewhere on the rifle)? Spotting telescope? I doubt there is a "spyglass" with it: I think they still use those. I never had a place to shoot mine further than 75 yards. Pointless.

Do you maen the Scout Reg. 20X?

I keep that with my un-issued '42 for display. The '43 is a stand alone original rifle. No chest or scope tin.

Well, that answers that! Now that is a scout rifle, as in Lovat Scouts.
