Love those enfields. Hornady makes a good 174 grain bullet if you're going to deer hunt with it.

Take a look at www.jfpo.org
They have a write up on converting Enfields to 7.62x54R. I have don it twice, and it is a nice conversion. This was when that cal. ammo was dirt cheap. It sure did tighten up the groups a lot. was 2.5 MOA before, and sub MOA after using 147Grain Czech at 100 yards.

Never heard of the 7.62 rimmed conversion, was looking at the .303 Ebbs improved for mine. Love your Enfield!
